As it is the holiday season here , a live re-enactment of the Roman Army was displayed to us. Instead of soldiers they asked some school age kids to participate. great fun for them and great fun for us watching them.
Gosh we drove on some narrow roads today to these places. It was all farming country, sheep and cows. Lots of wet edges along the road and it was not always mud either. Poor Charlie did not look her usual smart self when we got home but Rick did not let her suffer for very long and she looked like herself again in no time at all.
We had a very enjoyable day today, learned lots and appreciated the way these sites have been discovered and so very well preserved. A most rewarding day for us and guess what ,it has not rained at all and the sun was out most of the day. So far Scotland has been kind to us. Mind you most of what we saw today was on the English border region. All nice country just the same.
