17th August – Day off in Alston

After a quiet night and substantial breakfast I went to explore Alston.  This did not take long, but I was able to replenish my food and pick up a paperback in a charity shop.  Returning to the hostel, I was hoping to get a photo of the red squirrel that was playing around at breakfast, but unfortunately it proved elusive.

I spent the morning booking accommodation up to Jedburgh, and sorting out some washing.  I was then able to relax for the rest of the day.
