Coverdale runs between Wensleydale and Wharfedale. We were at Melmerby, about four miles from Leyburn.This was the view from my bedroom window at about 7 am.
If I looked to the right I could see this tree. The clouds were scudding in one direction and birds - rooks or crows - were flying directly into the wind.
When I saw this sign I thought someone wanted to keep peasants like us out. I'd never seen the word 'pheasantry' before, but my dictionary assures me it exists.
We followed a route from a book called Walks with a Pushchair. These all-terrain pushchairs are pretty tough. Luckily the three 'pushers' were tough as well. I may be over-dramatising slightly in the picture above, but the terrain was pretty rough.
Isaac was certainly wrapped up warm. It was windy.
