A few days In Yorkshire

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.

Glad you had a good time in Yorkshire, aliqot!

Did you take these pictures? Very talented. The first two are stunning, and the last one is incredibly cute!

You're very welcome to the well-deserved Excellent Blog Award, by the way!

All these are my pics, except the one with me on it. (lol)

Thanks for dropping by again. Yorkshire was great, and the weather too.
