Threaves Garden and Estate was a joy to visit and I was ready for a nice drive through some more countryside. I took the tour of the Solway Coast, with anticipation of visiting Sweetheart Abbey at the end.
One particular stop was quite breathtaking; the beach at Sandy Hills.
Another stunning viewpoint was to be found at Drumburn…
I zoomed in on Wardlaw Wood, the site of Celtic iron age and nearby Roman forts. That wood intrigues me. That would be a nice place to spend some time exploring on a future trip.
You see how it works; I visit one place as intended and as I go exploring I discover oh-so-many other places along the way that I don’t have time to visit on this current trip.
However, I just tuck it away for future reference for yet another trip back to this wonderful place I love.
Back on the road, I’m sticking to my plan for the day to finish up the day visiting an ancient Abbey – our next stop!
This village really was as pretty as a picture and deserves a whole lot more attention than I had time to devote. It was getting late in the day and I could feel my tummy grumbling. Didn’t want to spoil my dinner though and eat anything consequential, because I knew there were some fresh scallops waiting for me back at the Thistle Inn this evening… but that’s another story to follow shortly!
