The sun was shining and I had a galloping case of Cabin Fever again, so, I dodged the rain showers (successfully as it happens!) to do a new walk for me.


I got parked up near the entrance of North Cliffe Wood Nature Reserve (space for about 3 cars) and set off on what was a pleasant, peaceful meander.


My mission - get up onto the hill behind those houses:




Stormy skies rolling in:



Light at the end of the tunnel?



Heading to Gardom and Houghton Moor:



They're not scary when they're behind a fence! :



Into the woods we go:



Action shot of a bambi leaping out of my way:



The track through Houghton Moor is actually a very long fire break:



Rhododendrons? :



Looking across to the higher Wolds near Market Weighton:



Big, posh house:



A lovely 6.25 mile walk, AND I managed to avoid getting rained on.  It just started to spit a bit when I got back to the car so I'm saving a short mooch round the Nature Reserve I parked near for another day, probably when the trees have changed into their autumn clothes.[/size]

Thanks for looking [/size] :)

Lovely photos Mel    :)     Cows are rather endearing when they're behind a fence!

Looks like a nice, relaxing ramble, Mel. I especially love the photo of the stormy skies rolling in - the contrast between the dark clouds and the field is great!  O0


A cow came over to say hello and cautiously sniff my hand last night when we were out for a wander - this was from the other side of a wall, of course, otherwise I'd have already disappeared into the distance like Road Runner at the slightest show of interest.  ;D


That does look like rhododendron but I had no idea it could flower so late in the year.  :o

Cheers Dovegirl.  I'm quite sure I wouldn't have stood and taken their photograph if that wire fence hadn't been between us  ;D


adalard.   ;D  at the Road Runner comment  :D   I loved the contrast of the skies too - behind me, that stormy sky - in front of me, brilliant sunshine.


Cheers sunnydale.  I see quite a few deer on my meanderings, not always lucky enough to snap them though  :(

Lovely photos Mel, you did well to avoid the rain yesterday there were some torrential showers about.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

I drove through a torrential shower Ridge.  Thankfully, it was heading towards the coast and I wasn't  :D

Pleb, size isn't everything  :D   I've copied the pics from my blog rather than facebook in the hope they stay put on here a bit longer  :-\  Can't do anything about the size as far as I can tell.


April, cheers, yes, I saw it and thought it was a "sign" of better things to come  ;D
