Total walked to date... 741.39 miles. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Past Peebles and almost to West Linton.only about 30 miles south of Edinburgh. Already the area is becoming more built up, and any time I am near the road there i s a lot more traffic. I'm looking forward to reaching Edinburgh, which I know and well. Thos will be my 4th visit, and I've decided to treat myself with a nice hotel for a couple of days, and some nice meals. Eating on the road, especially in some of the smaller villages, can be very predictable.

The most interesting place I walked through on this section was Melrose, which is dominated by the magnificent ruins of Melrose Abbey.

King Robert the Bruce died in 1329, during the Scottish War of Independence. Before he died, Bruce asked Sir James Douglas to take his heart with him on a pilgrimage to Spain, to fight with the Moors. Douglas honoured the king's wish, and the preserved heart, in a silver chest, went with the Scottish fleet when it sailed to Spain.

Douglas was killed in a 1330 battle. The silver chest was found near his body.and the surviving Scots took it back to Scotland,where Bruce's heart was finally laid to rest in Melrose Abbey, although his body is in the cathedral at Dunfermline.

Last week before driving vacation: 608.98 miles
Total during 3 1/2 week vacation: 63.40 miles
Total since arriving home July 16: 10.65 miles

Total walked to date: 683.03 miles!!!

I've actually crossed into Scotland, and am about 7 miles south of Jedburgh, a beautiful town in the Lowlands. One of the main features is Jedburgh Abbey, built in 1138 by King David. 900 years later, the Abbey ruins dominate the town. Mary Queen of Scots house is in the town, and there are many historic homes in the area. The town of just under 5000 people is known for weaving, equestrian events, fishing and tourism.

I first visited Jedburgh with my son in 1993, and was there in 2004 and 2010 as well.

24.5 miles walked this week, for a new total of 585.38 miles
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Past Middleton, approaching Langdon Beck. Rainy, very wet underfoot, pretty much sticking to the trail and hoping for better weather soon.

I did make one stop, though, to tour the old castle in a village called Barnard Castle. My son and I visited there back in, I think, 1993 to celebrate his university graduation, before he went back in the fall to work on his PhD.

Walked 15.6 miles last week, so a total of 36.6 miles since I last tracked my route.

That makes a total of 484.35 miles since I started my walk.

I am now walking on the Pennine Way, and have just reached Hebden Bridge.
