This was my walk and the weather forecast was stormy for the afternoon with possible sleet or snow so I made the decision to set a good pace.. Nobody seemed to mind ...or was it just that I couldn't hear them so far behind me? Another group of walkers were doing the same route and their faces were a picture as they realised we had beaten them to the best seats for the lunch break! My group were treated to a 'smorgasbord' of historical facts about the mediaeval churches and the Chesterfield canal.......whether they wanted them or not! Back to the car park and we were wet and cold.....but we'd beaten the other group and most of the bad weather, the job was done.......... time for home..
Okay, so Sunday was Chrissie's walk and there were about a dozen of us which is good for a Sunday, with a few faces I haven't seen for a while. Such as young. Sarah who lives out that way and only walks Sundays now and 'youngish' Vivien back from her South African travels, always good for a laugh. I brought a new face with me too...Debra ...a small but perfectly formed sister in law who likes walking and who enjoyed her first walk with us...I'm going to have to watch what I say now....that'll be a first!! Forgot my camera again....dementia rampaging onwards. But here is a pic from one of the reccies done this week in preparation for the Youth Hostel weekend up in Osthmotherly later this month. Apparently the weather was so bad when they got there that sliding down Roseberry Topping on bottoms was the safest option. So the expressions on these highland cattle were mirrored by the faces of our ladies! Tee hee!
