It was a bit cloudy and we did get a few glimpses of stars I could talk about but no significant gaps in the clouds. We lit our campfire and did some cooking while we were waiting for more stars to put in an appearance. The chocolate bananas and campfire scones went down a treat but still no stars. We waited a bit longer and told star stories to pass the time and waited some more. Eventually we decided to start for home.
As we were driving through New Galloway I thought I glimpsed some stars. I was driving so I couldn't really look so I asked my passengers to look out for me and let me know if they could see them. Once we were out of the street lights the shout went up"Stars". As soon as we could we stopped and looked properly and wow were there stars! The stars had not let us down there was a full Galaxy of stars to look at and a few bonus shooting stars too. It was a real wow moment, not just for them but for me too.
Jessryl sent me a message "When we were back yesterday we just kept talking about the amazing experience we had and ended up sleeping at 5.30am and I kept bragging to my mum that I saw shooting stars!"
