Maxton Met Alastair Innes

This evening, Alastair, from Hector Innes Photography of Kelso, took us with him as he and his girlfriend (now his wife) went on an expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. He took us through the preparations one has to make, detailed the route and then took us up the mountain in glorious colour.
They went in a small group of six (with support) by a route which was "non-tourist" so that they could enjoy the atmosphere and scenery which he recorded in superb detail.
He then let us see some of the magnificent animals he saw on a short safari into the local game reserve.

It was a fascinating talk, much enjoyed by all in Maxton Village Hall.

Many thanks to Alastair for giving us an insight into an adventure which most of us can never enjoy for ourselves.
