Cunninghame Ramblers Christmas lunch. December 2013

Father Christmas arrived!!
Yesterday Saturday December 14 the ramblers met at Cecchini's Restaurant restaurant in Ardrossan for the groups Christmas lunch. Before lunch our chairperson had organised for  the 36 of us to have a leisurely walk to Saltcoats for a coffee stop and return to Ardrossan for lunch. However the weather dictated this outing it was blowing a gale coupled with driving rain. Some brave souls ventured out but I decided with a couple of others to use the bus to go to Weatherspoons for a swallie (a very well thought out suggestion) Once in Saltcoats the others joined us before venturing back in the awful conditions whilst I went back on the bus. One of the ramblers pointed out that I was a fair weather rambler and all weather drinker how dare he I hear you say!!Once back at the restaurant, the ones that walked got into some dry clothes before we all settled down to an excellent festive meal with lots of crummy jokes from our crackers  getting banded about.  Another excellent lunch in this fine restaurant with thanks  to our chairperson and spouse for organising the day perhaps you could try harder with the  weather next year (only joking).
A wee bit stormy yesterday.


  1. What was wrong with the weather? A wee bit blustery and a light shower doesn't deter real Ramblers.

    Merry Christmas to you and Anne from the Back Marker.

  2. I've never seen anyone so look the part as you do Gordon. HO HO HO.
    Have you got your sailors outfit sorted yet.?
