I had planned to go to Abbey St Bathens for a Birthday Walk yesterday but Tom was unable to go as he was a bit under the weather so we decided to cancel Sandrias Birthday Walk until November.
A few weeks ago Ian Landles had been telling the Langholm Public at an event in the Buccleuch Centre about the attractions in Victoria Park, Hawick, so Gaye and I decided to give it a visit and also visit Sainsburys for our shopping. The weather was beautiful and the park was everything Ian Landles had said about it so we had a lovely afternoon. We enjoyed afternoon tea in the wee cafe which unfortunately will close soon and be knocked down to eventually make way for a new cafe.
It even has a lovely waterfall.
The Statue to Motor Cyclist Steve Hislop who was so tragically killed in a helicopter accident in 2003.
Gaye with the memorial to Hawick's most famous man Bill McLaren the BBC Rugby Commentator.
