A Day Away
It was a damp misty morning when I left on the bus for Peebles to meet up with my Kelso friends at a sort of compromise mid point between our homes.
The mist was low over the Pentlands and everything was dripping with dew. However 2 hours and a coffee later the sun was out as I walked along the banks of the Tweed. The trees were turning autumnal and there were beautiful coloured reflections in the water, but is on these occasions that I so miss the presence of HL at my side. We had done this very walk so many times when we visited Peebles.
By the time I got back to the town, my friends had arrived and so we sallied forth to Coltman’s for lunch and a general catch up on family news.
My poached eggs, avocado and bacon on granary toast slipped over very easily and with no wine in deference to the driver, I was stone cold sober as they walked me back to the bus stop in the sunshine.
A lovely day and wonderful to have such good friends. Added to that it was uplifting to see the borders in sunshine wearing autumnal garb.
