LEJOG Day 47 – Melrose to Innerleithen 17.51 miles. Cumulative 848.98 miles

We need to start with a correction in yesterday’s blog, Day 46, Steve incorrectly assumed that Lynn’s pose on the suspension bridge above the River Tweed was intended as yet another demonstration of the size of a Sea Bass she caught in 2007.

Apparently the pose was intended to mimic Kate Winslet’s iconic pose from the film Titanic.

Steve apologises for failing to spot the resemblance.

The heavy rain showers continued overnight so it was good to have a solid roof over our heads and a hearty dinner and cooked breakfast to replenish the calories we are burning.

Our route followed National Cycle Network route 1, a mixture of lanes and tracks. An easy day underfoot, undulating walking following the River Tweed upstream, passing through a lot of Scottish Forestry Commission plantations.

The scenery didn’t disappoint, with spring flowers in full bloom and fantastic views up the valley ahead. We passed a few other walkers, cyclists and runners making the most of the sunshine and largely traffic free route.

We arrived in Innerleithen in time for a late lunch, before checking in at the campsite.
