Sunday eve walk

We had a funeral to go to on Monday in Buxton, so we thought we would have a few days in the Dales.

We stayed at the Stanley Arms, it was a sunny eve so we decided to go for a walk,

We strolled down this lane,

when we met 2 wooly friends who stopped having supper to say hello,

A stream kept criss crossing under the road with little falls.

Green green grass,

and the sun shining on the tree tops,

also shining on the hills and hollows.

We came across Horses,sheep and deer grazing all together,

The sun dropped and we decided to turn back,

As we strolled back the fluffy clouds gathered and

gave us a great showing

as the sky changed so many times.

What better to end our night of Nature, as we entered our room we found sherry and chocs awaiting us, what better service could one have.

Thanks for taking us along with you on your walk. The landscape is pretty and the sky was beautiful. And when you got back -- I can't think of a better way to end the day.

Lovely walk. So much to see, smell and hear. Not a soul in sight. Wow. Expect, almost, to Robin Hood over there in a picture.

Sorry you had to go to a funeral but what a beautiful area to walk in. Your photos were as always first-class Stewart. I am de-stressing as I look at them.

Wow what an amazing walk. I felt as though I was along with you. The countryside is so peaceful and there wouldn't be another place to be especially after attending a funeral. I am sure you found it to be so comforting as well. Beautiful photos my friend...and the two post before...were also so amazing!
