Glasgow (Rest Day)
I am currently a day ahead of plan so am deciding whether to have 2 rest days in Glasgow or use the extra day to take two days to cover the planned kms from Glasgow to Drymen. As I passed the Duke of Wellington statue this morning, I noticed that it had gained an additional traffic cone since I took my photo last night.
My first stop for the day was the Glasgow Cathedral.
On the walk back to my apartment, I took more photos of the Glasgow City Chambers.
The Scottish sense of humour (or hanging shit on the English) was evident from the following sign outside a pub. As I took a photo, a person having a smoke outside the pub shouted out to me to spread the word.
I decided to get a reflexology massage today to help with my sore feet and very tight leg muscles. All was going well until the masseuse moved my leg and my calf muscle cramped straight away. The next 5 minutes were spent working on my calf muscles. Across from my massage place was ‘The Scotia’ pub which is the oldest pub in Glasgow and was established in 17902, so I thought it would be rude not to stop in for a lunchtime pint.
After my lunch pint, I went shopping at outdoor store for midge spray, a midge mesh net hat and a sleeping bag. I need a sleeping bag for one night on the West Highland Way as I am staying in a ski resort in a hut which has only mattresses.
In the afternoon I caught the subway to the Riverside Museum. This is a transport museum and well worth a visit if you are in Glasgow. The first photo is of real cars (just in case you thought otherwise).
The display with the Raleigh Choppers took me back a lot of years when everyone wanted one of these bikes with banana seat and gears.
