Dear Pen and Dave,
So glad you can come on Friday, looking forward to seeing you. Piccadilly is the closest station and I think! you can come up Subway 5. I'm not sure but if it is not right you will have to ask someone where the Regent Palace is.
I will wait in my room until you come up.
See you then, love Sue xx

Hi you two Swingers!
Well I made it this time, one day out and I'm already having a ball. Weather perfect and the scenery too much! Not to mention the Continental men!
Sorry I couldn't write before I left but a postcard is more interesting than a letter. Leaving London on Sunday 31st August at 5:30pm so you can take it from there.
Hope you had a good time in Scotland and enjoyed it as much as I did. Love to you both, Sue xx

Dear Pen and David,
Been having a beaut time. Didn't like Belgium much. Adore Germany, we've just come through the Black Forest. Met a lot of people, some beaut, others weird.
Thanks so much for letting us stay the night before we left, we wouldn't have made the boat if we had slept the night in London. The weather has been really hot and we've been swimming quite a lot.
I hope you enjoy Scotland. Love Jenny.

Below from Google, isn't it a beautiful Abbey, what a shame it was sacked several times during the border wars.
Oh dear naughty me, maybe I shouldn't be walking on the old walls of this Roman Military Station... From the website below... it says... walk along the main street...
Visitors to Corbridge can walk along the main street of this Roman garrison town, flanked by the remains of granaries, a fountain house, markets, workshops and temples.
Sitting astride the intersection of Roman Dere Street and Stanegate, Corbridge was initially the site of a series of important forts. But after Hadrian's Wall was fully commissioned it developed into a prosperous town, a tempting leave-centre for off-duty Wall garrisons.
Abandoned after the collapse of Roman rule in Britain, the town centre has been systematically excavated, producing the fascinating array of finds now most attractively displayed in the site museum.
Below from Google Maps.
Heading back home and quickly... this photo below, taken near Sheffield, is the last photo we took until after we'd got home to our little flat in Merrow and gone back to our jobs. What a truly wonderful time we had, what a beautiful and generous country Scotland is. Thanks Scotland... I know it took us another 36 years to get back but we did enjoy ourselves once again in 2005.
