Welcome to Scotland and Jedburgh


We wrapped up the second day by crossing the border into Scotland.



It was so much colder than it appears in this picture.  Also, there was a man playing bagpipes a few feet away from me.  I grew to love the sound on this trip.


This is Jedburgh Abbey, which was built in the 12th century.  I know what you are thinking, and yes, we did see a lot off abbeys, cathedrals, chapels, and ruins on this trip.  




The town of Jedburgh itself was picturesque, to say the least.  It looks like a movie set.  Maybe I just need to travel more.



This was the home of Mary Queen of Scots.  


Fact:  It has the first toilet in Scotland.


In her back yard.

Beautiful photos! It's coming up to your favorite time of the year and I'm wondering if we are going to see your decorations this year.

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
