And The Horse Was Called Bessie!

Family holiday circa 1920.

My Great-Grandfather Michael, Great Grandmother Catherine and 10 of their 15 kids.

Catherine is currently pregnant with number 11.

My grandfather is that handsome young man sitting second from the right.

Michael took the family from Sunny Govan down to Saltcoats for a weeks holiday by the sea.

Sone journey on a horse and cart.

I’m told that the horse was called Bessie because that’s what he always called his horses!

Tomorrow the kids and I are off to Lanzarote for a week. All packed and ready to go.

No difference eh?

      1. Thats what we are doing too! 🙂

        I’ve hired a car for the week and want to tour the island.

        Any recommendations on places to see, bars or restuarants?
