Day 75 (rest day) – new tires and some pottering about

It’s surprisingly hard to find tires for a Skoda Octavia estate in Northumberland, and we ended up going to Hexham where a very smiley man in the local independent garage changed the tire in record time whilst also effortlessly responding to Rowan’s efforts to chat him up.
Tire fitted, we spent the afternoon at Hexham Gaol (small but very interesting, with lots of information on the border Reiver families) and I bought some (more) wool to make Rowan a rainbow cardigan. Tomorrow: onwards to Scotland!
