New territory ...

It was our 16th wedding anniversary while I was on holiday too. We would normally do something special on the day.....but due to other plans we took our special expedition the day before while the sun shined.

We decided to walk toward a hamlet called Settlingstones....a walk we have done many times ..

...but now we have a dog I didn't want to walk over the fell home - as I knew there would be cows with calves ...so instead we walked to Newbrough along quiet country lanes. This is a part of the area we've not really explored...so now I'm looking forward to exploring this new part of our territory over the autumn and winter when it's a better temperature for long walks with a dog.

Trip to Yorkshire

While I was on holiday I had a few days in Yorkshire visiting my sister. It was a lovely relaxing weekend as ever and here are a few pics from my visit.

The walk over the top from Haworth to Oxenhope on Friday afternoon.

The pretty shopfronts of Grassington -

and home to cakes baked by my sister....
