Well… Sprout and I have arrived at Jedwater near Jedburgh for 3 nights of chilling. I have to say I am a wee bit disappointed after the beautiful wee site in Cumbria… but it will do… the river is 20 feet away and some nice walks for Sprout.

I drove alongside Hadrian’s Wall for a good part of the journey here and I did plan on doing the forest drive at Keilder but got to it to find it is closed until 25th!!… but my Satnav found me another beautiful drive along single track lanes and through the hills. Unfortunately too many sheep around to stop with Sprout, which is a shame!

Anyway after 2 days of unexpected great fun, it is now time to chill!… I will probably head back and do the Forest drive on Friday.

Can’t believe how many dead flies I have collected… my windscreen is just as bad…. so will be shopping for a squeegee!

I have just come back into the safety of the van… it seems the midges have followed me!
