Walking by the Tweed


A fine day for Easter Monday, went for my usual walk along the riverbank then up through the little wood, with a detour to look at the may in full bloom, and the dozens of birds on the shingle bank  and in the water alongside the path to Fireburn Mill. Still fascinated by the panoramic views, I find myself wandering about taking twice as long to cover the distance; but hey, it’s a holiday. Groups of people out and about walking for once, and the Cheviots almost invisible under a haze of heat.

Talked to a lady who was saying how lucky we were to live in a place where one can wander freely.  How I concur.

    • Yes, it’s a lovely river to walk beside, especially this time of year, with the willows coming out, and the river itself full of birds, many of them on the spit of stones that appears when the water is low, beside the path that runs to Fireburn Mill.
