Oops – a little late, but better late than never. Calendar picture for April:
No April showers this week though. Here is a tiny little cute avenue of trees in bloom that I wandered past on my way to swimming the other morning:
Right in the middle of a built up area. A bit of a gem. The photos don’t do it justice, and I know it’s hardly beautiful countryside, but it is a delight to stumble across, through a tiny little alley-way at the back of the shopping centre.
I am grateful for this. It’s the small things.
Some random photos from my memory stick:
The fridge at work. The idea is that we bring back a ‘tasteless’ magnet when we go on holiday. Well, we have some pretty tasteless ones, so that worked…. But they do make us laugh.
Part of the ‘New York Skyline’ – actually a salt and pepper set, again, quite tasteless, but again looks kind of cool in the shadows when the sun is behind them. Always makes me smile when I go into the kitchen and spot them. Well, it takes all sorts I suppose….
And, for good measure, an actual skyline photograph;
Nearer to home : Stones found half way down Fairfield Fell in The Lake District. Cute, eh? I wonder who did that, and who it was done for.
Picture of Big Ben:
Picture of the paralympics:
Walking in Yorkshire..
Quite easy to work out which fridge magnets are mine then….
Well, it only took a year, but I finally manged it – the third peak. You can find the story of Peaks one and two here:
So, it was time for Peak number three, Ingleborough.
We put our best feet forward to start the trek:
Best feet forward
Note the new boots. My old ones were ten years old, and were really finished, so I was given new ones for my birthday. I thought I had broken them in….
This was the start of the walk:
…and here is the cave mentioned in the signpost:
It was a beautiful walk.
Gaping Gill Lunch spot
It’s this way. follow me!
Little Ingleborough – not too far to go now! See? It’s just up there!
Pen-y-Gent from Ingleborough. Nearly there!
It took a long, long, time, but I made it!
Legs and body fine – feet, well, not so good. The boots are so comfortable – until you walk up mountains in them!
But, I managed it. That’s it, the third Peak done. Have to think of something else for next year….
