This morning I woke to rain and gales. I spent the morning walking along the shore path into 55 mph winds gusting to 80 mph! I had to leave the coast as I couldn't make progress and followed the relatively more sheltered cycle route inland into Montrose where I visited the 'Montrose Care Home' run by Four Seasons Health Care. I received a lovely welcome from the staff and residents, before finding a room at 'Links Hotel'. You never know. I may have a rest day tomorrow!
