Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

On Edge

4 Comments

Tom has been to Derbyshire this weekend, with his university mountaineering club, he was too close to home, for us not to pop over with Spud the dog to say hello*, first of all we had to find him, it was busy on Stanage Edge (we’ve been here before)

A beautiful crisp day, the visibility could not have been sharper

Bouldering is the done thing.

We came across this rather fun gate, I couldn’t move the sun, or the gate, so I’m afraid you’ll have to take the photo as it is; loving the shadows.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Well done Spud. Terrific photos, I especially like the fancy gate ones. xx

  2. No one will ever convince me that dogs don’t know their people. Looks like a wonderful spot to spend a day.

  3. Reunited with his young master – a happy dog.

  4. I really like the connection he has with his dog. Also I like the pictures. It is a very beautiful place.
