Page 10 - Peebles 


crossing into the Borders

From there, we drove down into the Borders to Pebbles, a market community on the banks of the Tweed River. We were on our own for lunch and I had lunch at The Prince of India, which Colin had recommended. The food was pricy, average, and the waiter had a bad attitude. I heard him making rude comments about me to other restaurant employees.

After lunch, I visited a few shops, took pictures and bought a frog for a friend that collects them. There was still time for a short walk along the river before returning to the coach.
