John was a lovely man and a great tour guide. He had lived and worked in the mines for a very long time and now was back here taking us all round and demonstrating the ideas and suffering behind the task of bringing this fossil fuel out of the ground. I had my picture taken with John for the record and thanked him for a most excellent afternoon.
I briefly met with Rowan who was working and she asked if I had enjoyed the chance to see the museum. I had and thanked her for her kind offer before setting off to try to reach Roslin before dark.
By the time I left it was getting dark so I headed out to find a nice quiet place to get my head down. An old part of the road had been bypassed and that left an area away from the road noise and cars, so I set up behind the hedge.
