Sunday afternoon in Melrose

The purpose of my weekend trip North was to visit my Uncle who has been unwell and is now in a nursing home. It is many years since last saw him and the trip was well over due.

All previous visits have been to Newcastle, with my mother's family being Geordies, but he is now in the lovely town of Melrose in Scotland. My sister and I took a walk along the fast flowing river Tweed where salmon fishing is a popular activity.

It certainly paid to glance behind whilst walking away from the setting sun. All of a sudden, there was this.
lovely sky and reflections
