    Into The Woods. March Wood

    April 16 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    We decided to take an unprecedented walk in the woods. Not know for our physical activity, our natural habitat is usually near the camp fire.
    We walked approx 4kms. I want to say that if we didnt have a puppy with us, we'd have walked further, but I'd be lying 🤣
    It's been raining this afternoon so we had some down time in the van while Lilly slept. I made a nice fire for it to rain shortly afterwards, but I guess that's what umbrellas are for. Lilly and I sat by the fire, in the drizzle eating crisps and drinking wine. Is it any wonder shes now out for the count! 🤔Read more

    Suddenly the sun comes up...

    April 17 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    It's been a great day! In true Scottish fashion, I was straight out the door, shorts and tshirt at the first sunlight at 9am. At 5° that's a tad cold, even for us Scots, but it's the principle Haha.

    It's been lovely all day, although there was a moment of tension when we couldnt find Lilly. There she was, swimming in the loch for the first time. One campfire smoke free dog!

    Its 5.28pm now. Tomorrow we have to head home because I'm working on Friday, but before we go, here's a little bit more about where we're staying.

    Kelso

    August 10 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

    I got into Edinburgh without issue and took the bus to my friend's village of South Queensferry.

    After getting settled in, Helen and I walked down the hill to the town center. The picture of the bridges are from the main Street. Her house is between the two bridges on the left. We had a fantastic meal of White Pudding Supper with chips and brown sauce for me and fish and chips for her. I've been waiting so very long to have white pudding again. See here for more about it: https://g.co/kgs/HTDt7F. Yummy!!!

    We took the bus back up to her house (a whole two stops but worth avoiding the hill). Once we finished a tiny wee dram--the Doric word is thochty--I was off to bed.

    I slept about 5 hours straight before waking, but I was able to get back to sleep for another couple, so it was a really good rest. We were both up before 07:00 and already working around the house, such as setting up more beds for more guests and doing laundry.

    Now, we're having a light lunch (tomato soup) at a hotel in Kelso. We've come here to reconnaissance the hash trail for our Red Dress Run on the 22d. Apparently I'm now in charge, so I've changed it to a pub crawl. 300 or so Hashers all in red dresses--and I mean all--making their way through the village center while hitting four pubs along the way. What could possibly go wrong? LOL!

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Heading back to England

    September 27, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Travelled from Edinburgh out to the small seaside village of Dunbar, then we went along the coastal road before heading inland towards Jedburgh. Jedburgh, Scotland has a magnificent Augustinian Abbey which was built around 1135, it is now partially in ruins. We continued travelling the 'B' roads towards York, in England. Not a very good day for landscape photos as it was hazy all day. Everyday more and more trees are changing to autumn colours.Read more
