A day in Peebles

I am so totally exhausted. But I’m so glad for the exhaustion because I’ve had a great day out with a friend.

As you may recall, I reached out to a friend a while back when I was really struggling with my stress levels, who took me out for a day’s walking to help me out. (It did help.) Anyhow, he suggested another walk with him and his dog, and I was very happy to take up the offer!

Today’s walk was in and near Peebles, along the River Tweed. The weather was quite brisk, but the skies were mostly blue and the company was completely enjoyable. The walk took us past Neidpath Castle and several other old houses and manor houses—as well as over and under a variety of lovely bridges. 

I had purchased new hiking boots the day before, so when we got back to town I changed into an old pair of trainers before we wandered to the Old Town to see the ruins of Cross Kirk and some of the old workers’ dwellings.

Oh, and we stopped at the sweetie shop before heading home. Because we all know I like me sweeties!

Yes, it’s been a lovely day. I really am blessed to have such great friends. But now I’m really tired so I think it’s time for bed!
