The Macula In The Vernacular
Saturday 22 October 2022
fbb's current bedside reading is fascinating. EYLEA is the drug that is injected into the eyeball yyo stabilise the degeneration of the macula. The macula is a spot on the retina of the eye which, as a dubious privilege of old age, decides to behave in a very unkindly fashion!
Hence the symptons!
Not An Ideal Route To The Isle of Bute
Thursdyays trip from the Ardgarten Hotel near Arrochar should have been an Isle of Bute Circular. The normal schedule was to leave the gaff via Rest and Be Thankful and then strike south instead of skirting Loch Fyne and calling at Invarary. This brings you to a ferry terminal at Colintraive.
And fear not, it does take big coaches.
But it wasn't commodious enough! Their pre-booked slot was snaffled by an unbooked tank of treacle! So an hour to wait with the opportunity to re-explore the gorgeous Wemyss Bay station ...
... enjoy the graceful arc of the restored pulchritude of the porcelain "pissoir"!
Becaise of the hour's delay c/o Calmac (Boo, Hiss!!) there was no time to tootle round Rothesay and the coach sped south along the coast to Mount Stuart House.

A very small taxi ...
And Kevin Speed!
Oh, almost forgot - and a very green green bus?
