A walking weekend in Derbyshire


Our walking has now progressed sufficiently to tackle a mini walking weekend. Not many miles really, but enough to make us stagger bow legged back to the hotel, grateful that there was a bannister on both sides of the staircase to haul ourselves up to our room. ☺
 The weather was bright and sunny but as we climbed higher it became bitterly cold and it started to snow.
 Ilam village is very peaceful.
 Then we were in exposed White Peak country.




The scenery is breath-taking. I used to hate walking. Now l can not imagine not walking~that gentle methodical plod of your boots seems to transport you away from life's stresses. And for those walking hours you are away from it all.

    1. Yes it was good. Mind you, we over did it the first day and decided it was best to rest on the second day ~ lol.

  5. Love walking, can't go as far as I use to, but getting out, breathing fresh air, talking with my husband as we go is perfect.

    1. Hi Jill no we don't walk and talk. I think we each get lost in our thoughts. I bet Steve relishes the quiet time ~ lol ☺
