One of the best days in Yorkshire was when Cathy took me on a favourite walk of hers in Dalby Forest, to the Bridestones, you can see a map and description here.
We climbed up through the woods
and were both in awe of the colours, especially the larches
Which are particularly gorgeous this year
I can just imagine one of Kate Davies’ designs knitted in the colours above
My hair used to be the colour of that bracken! Seems like another life entirely.
We arrived at the top where the Bridestones are.
this is her view
A little further along there is an Elf’s tunnel, I had to squat right down low to get this picture, a 3 year old could just about walk through it, and elves of course.
now down into the valley
where we could hear a squawking bird
With a wonderful free App on my phone ‘Chirp’ I could identify it as a Jay, then we saw the Jay flitting through the trees, sounding very perturbed about something – like this
and nearly back to the car now
Oh what a fabulous walk.

The day was not over ………
