Its always sad to leave such loving towns, and Jedburgh is certainly one of those, full of character. Having spent our day of rest here we became well acquainted, but on this morning it’s time to let go and continue. This journey is a constant process of letting go. Life is a constant process of letting go.
And, Im glad because todays walk was possibly one of the most pleasurable walks I have ever been on. The walk out of Jedburgh, follows The Teviot river where we follow St Cuthberts way towards Melrose. We first cross a indiana Jones style suspension bridge.
Soon after crossing the bridge we decide to stop for some tea and snacks…
As we continue, we walk through ancient woodland following the river for most of the day. I feel at home, the overwhelming smell of wild garlic is also present with us throughout most of the day..
After passing through the woodland some miles later in once again the beaming sunshine, the Eildon hills are seen in the distance sticking out like 3 sore thumbs..
Once again, filled with joy, clear skies, and as we get to the Eildon Hills , Melrose is seen at the foot of the hills, we stumble down and set up camp for the night.
