A really nice day on Saturday so decision time. Work on the bike or go fishing. Sad to say, I chose the latter.

I got wet feet on the beach and lost a good Sea Trout at the Stannergate but enjoyed the fresh air and the Sunshine.

It would have been to hot for a bike ride. But it looks like you had a grand day out.

If you check out the Board Index, then go to Romania / Bulgaria and you'll see a very basic blog which gives a broad outline.

It all started with wanting to ride the Transfagarasan highway, then I realised I could see the Black Sea, so Varna in Bulgaria became a target.

The whole trip was 4200 miles and every day there was a highlight. Altogether absolutely brilliant ! :grin:

I did not know she was sailing that day. I just went down to the viewing point with my camera. But I have found sailings all around the coast so next year I may book a trip on her.

Just a wee snapshot of the bikes. The BMW is getting quite near to completion. The cold weather is the only thing holding me up.

A rear tyre and a couple of minor electrical issues and she will be ready to go. Roll on next Spring.
