Gluttony.....

..... if any of you ever get the chance to drive slowly south from Carfraemill to Coldstream, I highly suggest that you take the opportunity...... the Borders - between Scotland and England - are absolutely amazing...... and when the sunlight is hitting them just right - in late September or early October - and if it isn't raining in the evening?.... then the sun will be hitting the hillsides just about perfect.....

... I swear, a landscape artist could make a fortune for just painting half of the scenes that I drove through yesterday....... and as much as I have always loved the stark beauty of the Highlands, the Borders offer something just as beautiful, and much, much softer.......

.... who knows, perhaps I am leaning towards the softer things this trip?.....

.... anyway, I'm just back at the hotel from a day out in the City of York..... good grief, I have eaten more in the past four days than I have in the entirety of the preceding month... curries, Chinese, Mexican, monstrous burgers, Fish & Chips. Steak & Ale pies, chocolate cakes..... good god, at this rate I am going to arrive back in Tennessee needing a vacation from my vacation......

.... after this afternoon's boat tour down the River Ouse, I'm off for a nap..... after all, the dinner bell will be ringing again in about 45 minutes.....
