For Valentine's Day the Annan Walking Group passed Sweetheart Abbey and wandered in the romantic mists along the Solway Shore.
Twenty nine walkers met at Carsethorn and good company made up for the lack of the usual fine views, We crunched along the shore, past The House on the Shore to Arbigland.
We did note the fossils in the rocks but as they tended to be slippy paid more attention to balance. The tide was rising as we reached the Thirlstane so the picnic lunch was held in the little private cemetry at the western end of Arbigland estate. Then we walked past John Paul Jones House and back to Carsethorn.
