The Wrong Right Turn is the second instalment of the Mike Kaminsky story that started with The Prodigal Son.‭

I wanted to find out more about Mike and,‭ ‬having left him and Bessie heading south,‭ ‬I wanted to make sure he got home OK.

The Wrong Right Turn

I woke up aching and tired with the sort of tiredness that comes from too much thinking and too many miles.‭‭‭

I’d had a difficult few weeks.‭ ‬My mother had died and I’d missed her funeral.‭ ‬I’d returned to England and my father and I had spoken.‭ ‬Good words,‭ ‬but words we’d almost left too late.‭ ‬We’d parted friends though,‭ ‬for the first time in our lives.‭‭‭

It had been raining when I left my father and the rain followed me all the way to the ferry.‭ ‬Normandy was drier and warmer but,‭ ‬by the time I got to Brittany,‭ ‬the rain threatened again and so I stopped and found a camp site where I set up my tent for the night.‭‭

‭I slept restlessly,‭ ‬with too many thoughts crowding my mind.‭ ‬I welcomed the dawn‭ ‬-‭ ‬time to do rather than think.‭ ‬I got dressed and walked into the village.‭ ‬At a cafe I had breakfast and read the paper‭ ‬-‭ ‬bad news as usual,‭ ‬but other people’s bad news.‭‭

Back at the camp site I took down the tent and loaded Bessie up.‭‭‭

Bessie is a black BMW R80.‭ ‬We’ve been together a long time and shared many miles.‭ ‬I don’t know when I started to call her Bessie but I do and I think that she understands.‭‭‭
