Sunday 19th June
We left Diana at 10.30 and drove to meet Christine and Jack at The Steadings inn in Edinburgh. It was great to see them again but Jack is now looking very old. He is 94 now.

We had a nice meal with Christine insisting on paying. What's more she gave us a home baked fruity gingerbread to take with us in Morag.
We continued on our way a little after 2pm. We had intended to stay near to a small bird reserve that we had visited on a previous trip to Northumberland but were disappointed to find that it had closed. What's more, the nearby camping site didn't take tourers. We spent a frustrating 30 minutes or so phoning possible alternatives and visiting to see if they had space before we found a CL with a pitch free some 6 miles NW of Alnwick.
