The weather was beautiful, sunny with a light breeze - perfect! The blurb on the leaflet said to allow at least two and a half hours but it could take up to four!!
Here is the photographic record….
|A beautiful start to the walk|
|just right for the boys|
|Tree full of pennies|
|The first waterfall|
Never mind the view - look how steep that step is!
The boys found crickets along the way
Handsome isn't he? My eldest is not happy about his photograph being shown! (notice that bottom step!)
….so we thought. This is Thornton Force - painted by Turner
ah! ha! this must be it!Ha! not likely!
At last we reached this beautiful view and I really thought we had gone as high as we were going (by now we had been walking for about two and half hours!!)
Not quite though!On the way down (I say down but there were still more steps to go up!)
This was the view of the path - way over in the distance of the top part of the walk
Two sheep but before I clicked they moved!
Finally back into the village and our reward - lunch - at 3.15!!!!
Oh! You might wonder - did the boys get to sleep any quicker - you bet! So did we!!
I ached for the next three days - slowly getting back to normal!
Thanks for looking, Chris
Oh! and…Elizabeth - I hope you enjoyed this!
