Cloud dodging.
« on: July 31, 2019, 16:46:55 PM »
I took a run up by Galashiels, Peebles, Stobo and Moffat, returning down by St Marys Loch managing to miss all the rain. Near the Beeftub there is a monument that I must have passed literally hundreds of times, but today I stopped to see what it was.

Turns out it was in memory of two brave guys from the postal service.

I doubt if you would get that kind of dedication these days.
On the way down I took a few shots just to rub in what a lovely place the borders area is. :)




Enjoy.

Andy.
Every day above ground is a good day.

Andy,
Next time you are that way stop in Moffat and go into the old cemetery (downhill on the same side as the Rumbling Tum) the two posties are buried there, marked by a big memorial stone.

The Borders certainly is a ‘lovely place’. Great photos Andy.

Cool piccies Andy.

Tis nice to just wander sometimes isn't it.  ;D

Popped out this morning briefly . . .

Test fitted my panniers to my recently acquired racks this morning, so thought it best if I went hunting for a Starbucks, seeing as how the bike was dressed for it  ;) . . .

Not one here . . .

Nor hear . . .

Or here either


Gave up looking after a while  ;D
