Tour of Britain, Stage One ends in Kirkcudbright

Great excitement here yesterday as the long anticipated Tour of Britain finally happened. The town centre was, for all practical purposes, sealed off from Friday evening onwards so that the street furniture could be erected. Oldies like us and our neighbours just sat tight and waited for Sunday to dawn. To my amazement there was a car boot sale in the Harbour Square this morning. The dismantling of the gear and apparatus must be extremely speedy and efficient to get the town reopened, and as there was another stage occurring today based upon Kelso in the Border country. The photos on Facebook and the video above were all done by Sam Kelly who seems to be the unofficial, but extremely diligent, archiver of Kirkcudbright’s affairs.
