TT and I started our day with a run. Neither of us were very keen. I plodded round by five mile route and felt every step. TT on the other hand clocked up twelve miles. BB started his day x-boxing-ing. In amongst all this I did a few chores. We then set off for Peebles, where we had a wander, then lunch (where BB had lunch envy!) and then went for a walk along the River Tweed to the Neidpath Viaduct. We then braved the Neidpath Tunnel! I wasn’t keen, so armed with a head torch (TT – for he had come prepared) and phone torches (BB and me) we made our way through the tunnel. It wasn’t so bad, but I wouldn’t do it on my own – as it bends round and you are well through before you can see the daylight at the other end.
Our next stop was Dawyck . The garden closed earlier than we had bargained for, so we had a brisk walk around the garden, admired the snowdrops and were disappointed that the café also closed early, so there was no tea and cake. It was then home for a quiet night. TT watched a movie, but I nodded off.
Yesterday’s blip was through an arch – today’s blip is in the Neidpath Tunnel – another arch.
