Away Days 2

Just a quick little addition as well, as we managed to sneak another day down in the peak district. We walked along Stannage edge once more, in glorious sunshine, In fact it was rather hot! I saw and heard a Curlew on the top, it was chasing a crow away and I'm not sure if the crow had managed to steal something like an egg?? The Curlew was distressed, it makes you feel helpless for them. I also saw what I think was a Ring Ouzel, I managed to take a movie of it, it sat on the very edge singing away, I thought it would fly off as I approached, but it stayed. Total delight for me and a first, I've never seen one before! The movie has too much wind noise on it to put on the post though. But I will put some lovely sunny photos on! Hope you enjoy them, and that maybe youve had some nice away days too.
First photo is the way up and then views on the top and of the edge and the climbers!

Away Days

Hello there blog followers. I have been away, just for a couple of days, down to Shrewsbury, to visit some friends there. They made us very welcome in their beautiful home, and made us a superb meal on the Tuesday evening. They actually live just inside the Welsh border, and have some gorgeous views, with nothing but fields and sheep surrounding them. The house is so lovely, very peaceful, with roses round the door, just glorious.

Just to keep things Arty and because Jon has such talented artists in his family, I took some photos of the art on their walls. Jons Mum painted the beautiful floral.

Jons brother painted the 2 seaside views, from photos of the family on holiday at their home in Florida. I realy like the light in these 2. Hope you like them too.

We had a very enjoyable time, toured Shrewbury, which is beautiful, quite like york I thought, possibly a bit smaller. With lots of side streets and gorgeous little shops. So thank-you Lindsey if you read this ! X
