and suddenly its November - and the time of leaves changing their colours - the Rowans so noticable here in town with their array of gold - rust - deep crimson leaves.
there was a trip to Eyemouth that i havent yet had enough time to put up here.
it was early October, and Morelle and I decided to use our brand new Bus Passes and take a trip to Eyemouth. it turned out to be where she used to go as a child for family summer holidays, staying in the caravan park up on the cliff! so it was a bit of a trip down memory lane. she took me to the cafe where they always went - it is still there
after a much needed coffee we walked beside the esturary, some old fishing boats moored but most boats fishing at sea. it was not a particularly sunny day - in fact it was downright grey! nevertheless it was good being out of town, and exploring somewhere different.
Eyemouth has a bit of interesting history - none of which can i now remember! i think it had to do with smuggling. there was a huge house built right on the side of the river estuary which i seem to remember has stories attached to it regarding hidden caves or underground places for the smugglers' loot. in fact i think that castellated roof might be the roof of that house. i didnt think to take a photo of it.
walking out of town along the coast - the rock formations are fascinating. we found an old bench and sat there with sandwiches and juice. a golf course behind us and the occasional golfer having a shot, and occasional walkers with dogs passing by.
