A run down to Irvine today as it looks like the 'City of Adelaide' will finally start her journey to leave Scotland today.
This is after yesterday's aborted run when I learned halfway down the road that it had been postponed.
I had driven through very heavy rain this morning so was relieved to find that Irvine was dry, if a bit on the windy side.
Sadly, despite a large turnout of well wishers to see her off, the departure was abandoned for a second day.
This grand old lady is certainly not running to schedule with the inclement weather.
She is now expected to depart either Friday or Saturday.
