We did take a day trip to Moffat a couple of weeks ago, amd the bookshop was open. I only bought one book though, a history one: Mary Queen of Scots The Fair Devil of Scotland by Jean Plaidy. Until then I had thought that she only wrote fiction. Jack bought Gillespie by J MacDougall Hay. We thought we might as well have a look around some of the tourist attractions so the Grey Mare’s Tail was first on the agenda. I took the photo below just beyond the car park looking down the hill.
This one was taken a wee bit further up the hill.
This is what we came to see – The Grey Mare’s Tail, one of the biggest waterfalls in the UK apparently.
And this is as close as we got, we did think about walking all the way up to the top, but then thought again, mainly because of the gathering grey clouds. Well that’s our excuse!
The proof that we were there, but not up there. A selfie, not a great one but you get the idea of us, slightly bewildered looking!
One of the reasons for not going on a longer walk was that IKEA Edinburgh was calling us via Peebles, we were on a rug hunt. By the time we got to Peebles everywhere was shutting, then I realised that I had brought the wrong notebook with me and so I didn’t have Evee’s phone number. Oh well, we’ll meet up another time and make a special trip to Peebles and surrounding area.
So onwards to IKEA where – can you believe it we didn’t buy a thing!! Apart from dinner. No not Swedish meatballs, I tried them once and didn’t like them at all, maybe I got a batch containing horse, and I’m not joking. So it was fish and chips, they were fine. Back home sans rugs, but I’m glad to say that we bought a couple of nice ones today locally.
