The past couple of days had been tough, we were quite tired and probably moody, not with each other, it had just been hard... Long days and loads to do, yet we were still there and still going strong

As we crossed Irish Sea, I started to feel a bit cheated, I wanted 50 foot high waves and a following sea, but we just had chop...

I thought about my dad and that he always told me that Guinness was made from water from the river Liffey and that it doesn't travel well and that's why it tasted so good in Ireland. And as Always, he was right.

We had seen the Isle of Man where he was was born and I really wanted to go there and I thought about the coin he gave me as a child with the three legs on it and he told me "Whichever which way I fall, I stand"



To our starboard side was the Mull of Kintyre and I remembered the Beatles song...

Come on!!!! something great had to happen soon!!!

And it certainly did

I'd been dipping in and out of the whisky tread and to be honest, I don't know what the hell you lot are on about, but all I know is that I wanted to go to a distillery, after all, when in Rome.

I had been bending Trev's ear about going all the way round Scotland but everyone was set on going through the Caledonian canal...

Instead I started to work on Trev (like a kid) about visiting a distillery and as soon as I saw the Isle of Jura on the potter I was on the Radio...

And.... Bingo

Is Rick looking miserable because Trevor won't let him have a single malt instead of orange juice?
