Other, more right-minded beings were going about their business at the turn of the tide on the famous salmon river – such as the ever patient seal and the fisherman mending the net. The bridges over the Tweed in Berwick always look as though they’ve just stepped from an old, old postcard.
There are 3 towns within a 20 mile radius of where we live, so although we have no shop in the village, with a little effort retail therapy on the hoof is possible as opposed to online shenanigans which is nowhere near as enjoyable. All 3 towns have remarkable histories and have been photographed by many a tourist. We all have our own take on places and on this day’s wanderings, this is mine.
Today’s therapy was in a town I always think of as skylines, jumbles of roofs and the sea. On sunny days the light is truly amazing here and the town buildings are very colourful, but today was a little misty and I could feel a touch of greyscale coming on. Certainly gone very pre-1960s and earlier: must have been the weather’s influences and the nostalgia of the aging.

Bridges and boats and buildings

Lunch and a churchyard
I tend to park on the opposite side of the river to the main town centre – it makes me stretch my legs after the drive in – and by the time I’d got back to the car I was chilly and hungry. I was parked by the churchyard and broke out my lunch whilst warming up in the car. This church is associated with the fishing community and has a weathervane to match.
Fed and warmed I prepared to drive off to visit my friend Isla (she who started me off on the doll’s house trail) and caught this final shot for the day in my wing mirror. I liked the curves of mirror and pavement, buildings and fence.
No more therapy till next week – he-ho.
