This is night No.13/2021 living in the caravan. On a trip to Dumfries and Galloway, pitched at Garlieston C&MC Site in the coastal village of Garlieston.

It's a long drive to get here. It took around 4 1/2 hours, the route taking us down through Perth, past Stirling, through Glasgow, then down the M77 and A77 past Ayr, then cross country to Newton Stewart then south to Garlieston.

Stopped at what is simply named 'The Forest' just outside Garlieston to give the dogs a good run around. It's a really nice wood, with a couple of way marked trails. The bluebells were out, and it looked fantastic.

Arrived at the site around 1430. I remember the receptionist here from previous trips, a nice woman from Northern Ireland who has been here for years now. She had already assigned me a pitch, but then wondered if I'd prefer to stay across the road in the walled garden which is far quieter and quite nice. She gave me pitch 51. The same pitch I'd stayed on with my last Eriba Puck back in Aug 2017!

And here's me today, same awning, different model of Puck, newer RAV4, same pitch!

It has been a long day, so just took the dogs a few short walks around the site. First we went down the beach next to the site, giving some good views out to the Wigtown Bay.

The view of the site, it is right on the waters edge on the site of a former harbour and sawmill. Very nice location.

And, another Eriba on the site. A bit more modern than mine, and a special edition; the blue and white of the limited edition 'Ocean Drive' model based on a Troll 530GT.

We're going to have a quiet night, just making some potato wedges and Peri Peri chicken, then will probably just listen to the radio tonight. The weather improved all day today, and is quite pleasant now in the early evening. The forecast is for some good weather over the next few days, so lets hope!
