Wednesday 8th April was an easy rest day in Ullapool, intended that way to give Karen a chance to rest up a bit. The highlight of the morning was walking down to the local laundromat and doing a load of washing – I was quite keen to keep on wearing my ‘Dakar’ t-shirt for another three weeks before even contemplating a wash for it but Karen insisted, so now it’s clean again – at least for a day 🙂
Wandered down to the park overlooking Loch Broom whilst our washing was being done, and then shopped for a few nibblies in the Tesco across the road from the laundromat whilst it was being dried, and then wandered back to Creagan’s Guest House for a bit of an afternoon nap.
Woke up mid afternoon and went for a walk along the Main Street of Ullapool, past the ferry terminal where a large ferry had just docked and was unloading cars and trucks, and down to the Arch Inn where we grabbed a couple of drinks and sat on the benches overlooking the water, enjoying the afternoon sunshine and watching some dogs playing in the water.
Another early night – BBC One just can’t retain my interest past 7:30pm, so we drew the blinds and had an early night in preparation for moving on again tomorrow morning.
