But some have been taken - the new camera came out for its first airing when we were in the Yorkshire Dales for a couple of days (10 and 11 October) on our way to Scotland. Seems ages ago but is only 2 weeks ago!
|As we approached Austwick, the end of this rainbow was right beside us on the road.|
|The room with bath and basin. There was a separate shower room with toilet and basin and also a wee cloakroom/kitchenette.|
|Bruce is the Scotty dog who acted as a doorstop. He and David became firm friends. Not sure what the constant alliance with inanimate animal-types is about with David ...|
|David with his new friend|
The weather was a bit cooler and misty, and that made the walk we did a bit more atmospheric ... Don't be alarmed though, as we didn't venture terribly far and we had instructions for the 2 hour walk.
|We were amazed by the stone fences - such a huge amount of work to construct them. Clearly shows the amount of labour that must have been available back in past centuries.|
|Seemed quite late for calves, and I am pleased the pathway didn't go through the field with them - mothers and babies should not be disturbed!|
|There are the remnants f an old barn beside the path and a little stone bridge crossing the brook.|
|David asked me to stand there so I would obscure the car behind me. I think I am offended. I know I have regained some of the weight I lost, but I am sure I couldn't obscure it totally.|
|Not much left of the rabbit leg ...|
|The source of stones for the walls and buildings - and they fall down by themselves|
|Down the hill and on the way back to Austwick.|
|Another stone bridge - very old and still very stable.|
|And David crosses the bridge. It is good to see photos of David - otherwise it looks like I am the only one on this trip!|
We will be going back to the Traddock - it is a good stopover point on our way to or from Scotland, and it's a lovely bit of luxury. Nick and Clare, who we stayed with in Stroud, suggested it, and it was a great recommendation. We too would recommend it highly.
