Autumn Gales and ruins

Aftr a week of glorious sunshine we woke today to rain and wind. A distinct change in the weather. I am reading a book about Borders architecture and old buildings and it has taught me a lot about buildings in this area. Unfortunately most have been destroyed over and again by either marauding Scots (when it was English) or marauding English (when it was Scots). The result is a lot of ruins, many not cared for as they are of "lesser importance". Nonetheless we will be visiting some of the more off the track ones and report.
