A Day Out in Another World
I met up with my friend Alison today. We live about 60 miles away from each other and try to meet up once a month either nearer where she lives or nearer to me. This time it was near to me and we met up in Langholm, a small town in the Scottish Borders. Langholm is situated on the River Esk and surrounded by hills, the highest, Whita, has an impressive obelisk dedicated to Sir John Malcolm the soldier and politician, at its peak. On a clear day the obelisk can just be seen from Carlisle 20 miles away.
