First day out of town

Our blue and silver Audi took a little while to collect due to the loooong line at the car hire place.
But it was worth the wait and we headed south to  Melrose a lovely little village with lots to see.



 Our first pub lunch for this trip. The women beside us had ordered a "healthy sald"- they were huge serves. Fortunately we ordered a sandwich which was a truly delicious meal and sufficient- so glad we didn't get a huge plate of food.


 Melrose Abbey is said to be the burial place of the heart of Robert the Bruce.
The abbey was founded by Cistercian monks and has a long and fascinating history spanning from the 12th century.

 Perhaps the first of the gardens for this trip
