The event

8th August 2009, Melrose

Thanks to the Melrose Inglis for their hospitality for this sunny event. It always looked promising but with inspired suggestions like lunch in the park followed by ice-cream, it got even better.

We met at the Inglis' house and enjoyed coffee in the sun, followed by the riverside walk to Melrose, lunch in the park, then on up the hill. The energetic ones tackled Mid then North Eildon and the rest did North only. The summit photos are from North Eildon.

High tea at the George and Abbotsford was welcome after the return riverside trek, rounding off a great day out with very kind weather.
