Deffinatley give it a go. I am no socialiser, but I have found new freinds and learnt a good deal, as a result of walking with a group. 

I've emailed Penrith ramblers  O0 Let's see where this goes.

Got a photo of the view accross the valley towards Back tor woods and High Willhay?


Here you go Rob, you may need to pan accross it. But just so happens I had just the photo you requested, from yesterday's walk. Wreckage of the Dekota bottom right, Black tor woods accross the valley.

Up on Blackstone Edge, very warm with a welcome breeze. It would have been beautiful clear skies except for the fact that Marsden Moor is on fire. Followed the Pennine Way for a while then just wandered  before heading to Hebden Bridge, just in time for the annual duck race.

Happy memories of youth.  Good walking country.  Plus a fine hill climb on a push bike up from Hebdon bridge, as I recall.

You must have had thighs of iron to ride a bike up there regularly. Respect!

It was the getting there and back, from Liverpool, that required thighs of iron. A around 145 mile circuit over many a fine hill. O0

I'm leading our WI walking group on a bluebells walk tomorrow.  Our usual walk leader has had an op which means she can't walk far for a month or two.  The weather's not looking that great mindst, but I hope the rain showers hold off until we get in the cafe at the end  :)

Fingers crossed for you regarding the rain Mel hope the bluebells are smashing  O0

I'm accompanying my nephew to the zoo tomorrow and having dinner round my mother's on Sunday so no walking this weekend for Rob. It'll have to wait until next week.

Working today but supposed to be getting some miles done in the Chilterns on Monday with my daughter as training for her DofE expedition and also just for the fun of it.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

Gower then Pembroke coast path.
With my new (my first :-[ ) smart phone - got viewranger installed so if you hear of a walker going over a cliff whilst trying to follow a route on a mobile that will be me. If you see steam rising from the west that will also be me trying  to sort the ***** thing out unless I have already gone over the cliff, of course.
So many paths, so little time

Our WI had a trip to Waddesdon Manor and Bletchley Park so I've just spent a lovely weekend part-bagging a bonus County.... Buckinghamshire  :)    Frustratingly, I have just under 1 mile to go now for it to be classed as "Officially Bagged"  ;D

Walked the coast path with MrsG and our daughter, up  to Hartland quay yesterday.  What a lovely stretch that is. O0

Found an interesting spot to sit and admire the view.  ;)

That looks rubbish.  Couldn't you have found somewhere a bit better?  ;)   :D   :P
