Hello Bloggy Peeps, how are you all? I’ve come over all alliterative!!!
Although WordPress is not telling me so (huff!) I know that it is my bloggiversarie today – yay, go me!! A whole year of blogging. More importantly go YOU, lovely readers. If it wasn’t for you all I would have given up long ago, so many thanks for sticking with me, putting up with me, and writing wonderful comments
I have some photos for you of our rather squishy, squelchy stroll (I warned you!!!) around the woods.
First up… a lovely view of Victoria Tower (local landmark) peeking out of the mist and looking rather Hobbit-like. I made Mr P stop the car so I could take this. It had to be done.
Ok, off we go. It was very muddy. Little J was not happy when he got covered in it but once that was over with we could carry on with our splodge. I think they should be singing “Hi ho, hi ho…” on this picture.
Not a lot of greenery around at the moment but still some fantastic textures and colours. There was some amazing mustard yellow moss on some of the tree trunks that I didn’t manage to get a picture of.
Little J was looking for footprints, ant footprints in particular (thanks Peppa Pig!) but we did find sheep footprints.
Believe it or not there is a reservoir very close to where we were walking but we didn’t find it or even glimpse it from a distance today. That will have to be a photo for another time. There were several streams though, no doubt all flowing into the reservoir.
Well snow is forecast here tonight and tomorrow and we often get quite a bit because we are so high and close to the Pennines. Although the forecasters are often wrong too so we shall see what its like in the morning.
