Day 6: 16 August 2019 – Thurso Part 1
When we got to Thurso dad and I was desperately looking for a public toilet. My eyes was so teary I could hardly see in front of me. We stopped at the public toilet, I did not have cash on me so I had to pay with my credit card to use the it. It worked out to R23.70. The most expensive bathroom break I have ever taken in my life. Here in South Africa we pay R2.00 or R5.00 to use a paid toilet.
Thurso Scottish Episcopal Church also known as St Peter and the Holyrood Church
The Meadow Well
This small building houses the well which was once the main water supply for the town of Thurso.
I had one huge blister under my right foot since we left Edinburgh. Every day it just got bigger and it started burning like hell. Dad was also looking for some mouthwash his new dentures hurt him and he wanted something for the pain.
We went into Stutherland’s Pharmacy and was helped immediately. I showed the lady my blister and she brought me some plasters and told me it will take about two to three days to heal. She also helped dad and one of her first questions was if he was diabetic. She helped us with a smile and wished us a pleasant journey further.
Former St Andrew Church
I nearly fell off my chair when I was researching and trying to identify this beautiful church. One of the photos had a description Skateboard plan for old Thurso church. It is a beautiful building and I do hope that the new owners treat it with respect. At least they want to use it for good. I think it will be good for the community and it will give artists to get creative.
Thank you very much for taking the time to join me on my travels through Scotland. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did.
Till next time, safe travels and keep dreaming.
Have a fabulous day.
