Day 4:
Heading East for Peebles. Peebles was lovely. Parks either side of the Tweed and free parking all day. We stayed all day. I chatted to a couple eating Fish and chips and enquired where the shop was. They were from Washington USA and gave vague instructions. When I eventually set out on foot I was surprised by the same people asking me to ride in their car and said they would drop me by the Fish & Chip shop. I gratefully accepted.
 An earlier chat with a local recommended Kelso so that evening we decided to head further east and arriving quite late in Kelso, we ‘wild camped’ next to a parked lorry just outside. The lorry woke us at 5.30 am.

Day 5: 
The early morning wake prompted us to move to the town long stay car park, it was free all day. Kelso has block stone streets and lovely bridges and we explored here until lunchtime and then headed east again. Berwick on Tweed was the next stop, huge town wall and a short walk to beach. We then went slightly inland to the Plough Inn. Their charge for a spot in their car park was £10. The view from here was better than their small campsite.

Day 6:
Went to ‘Holy Island’ for the day. We timed it so that the causeway would be open. Parking was easy and plenty of room. It was about a mile to walk to the castle. Excellent place, lots to see. Returned to the Plough Inn for night 2. Same lovely spot for another £10
