Two wonderful months since Sasha and I departed Victoria. Do we miss Victoria, YES, Do we miss family and friends YES. But this trip is simply something I had to do. I felt that I was stagnating in Victoria.
Although I would love to reach a century in age, I would like to have all my faculties and certainly to be mobile. In the tiny village of Newcastleton, I have met a lady with a walker. She uses the walker as a support system and she walks 2 miles per day along the river bank. Her son is the same age as me and he walks with her each and every day along with “Daisy” a mixed Jack Russell and Border Terrier. This lady is sharp as a tack a wonderful sight these fine summer days.
We go for long walks, Sasha, Scooby and Toddy always culminating in a swim. (for the hounds) every day. I have seen more sheep and highland cattle than I have ever seen.
Sasha and I are here in Hawick until 22/23 August at that time the owners will be up from London for a short holiday. They will take the dogs back to London till Oct 09.
So Sasha and I are off to Bobby’s house in Peterhead, visit my 3 McRobb Cousins in Aberdeen. Then it is off to Inverness. Where we will house sit for 2 weeks watching over a young Jack Russell. Mid Sept we depart Inverness and head for Shoreham by Sea Sussex. There we will be sitting on a Canal boat with 2 Labs.
Mel n Irene will be stopping by on their way from France to Heathrow, It will be great meeting up again and talk about our house sitting adventures.
Then Sasha and I will pick up Scooby and Toddy in London and head back here to Hawick. A few pics from this week.
continuing with Castle Views.
