This blog is to introduce you to my town - Peebles, in the Scottish Borders - just one photo at a time, with perhaps a little description and maybe some history thrown in. I hope you will find it interesting. The title comes from a historical comment made by someone who preferred Peebles to the great and famous cities. I know how they felt. It's always a pleasure to return here however long you've been away.

If you want to make a comment, ask me a question, or merely just want to say "hello, I've dropped in", you can do that by using the comment section below each entry. (Just click on the word COMMENT and follow instructions. ) I'd love to know what you think of what you see of my town.

I don't have an expensive elaborate camera so the photo quality may not be brilliant, but I'd like to think my pics will please you. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks to Mary H for the lovely designs I used for my background, and thanks too to all of you who have chosen to support my blog by becoming "followers".

Well, so far nothing has happened through the photographic club. Is there anyone else in Peebles who would be willing to take this on?

Big apologies

I have to offer you my apologies for letting this website lapse for so long. I am finding in retirement that I have so much to do that I really haven't got the same amount of time to get out and just take photos, then come home and write about them. You will probably notice that in my other blog too! Tonight is our Photographic Club meeting and I am going to ask if there is anyone there who would like to take over this blog.

I'll let you know what happens!
Once again - sorry! I know you enjoy Peebles along with me.
