At jimmy's house we had a nice brew by his lovely wife and the Waverly came past. I lived in Devon and the Waverley was based there for a while. The last ocean going paddle steamer

nice view from Jimmy's Hoose

 

we blatted along via Glasgow, refuling there and just took the motorway home into the wind, which was fine for my bike with a screen. Mike and Tommy struggled but we met up at the refuel stops.

that's it. 1663 miles, £178 in fuel and priceless memories. If you havn't done it yet, what are you waiting for.
