UK June 2011 – Day 22. Today we said goodbye to Scotland and headed South.
The day started with rain, so we had to take down the tent with the fly set and pack it away wet. Our plan was to get to take it easy and get to Darlington to meet up with Flickr friends Cath and Jon on July 7. With no real plan in mind we drove down to Edinburgh (Once more across the country) drove through Edinburgh, deciding not to take in the sights and headed South on the A1.
We finally came to a halt in the Borders at Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Driving around we found the Harrow Bank Bed and Breakfast run by an ex Gordie fisherman (ex fisherman not Gordie). Ginger couldn’t understand a word he said. He had sold his fishing boat and bought the B&B three months previously. The place was very nice despite my misgivings about it being near the docks.
We wandered around Berwick, found a nice Chinese restaurant, The Royal Garden – where I took today’s picture, just outside the door. Forgetting about the length of my chop sticks I managed to knock a glass of wine over myself and my camera bag (no damage I’m glad to say).
We ended our evening out drinking pints in a fine old fashioned pub with a snug, no TV and no loud music. The way pubs should be.
