We've chosen the wettest few days possible for our stay in Derbyshire - so after a leisurely morning in the cottage, we visit Buxton. Museum, art gallery, coffee shops call.
We've been here before. I stayed in the Youth Hostel in Harpur Hill when I was a teenager - going back a long way. I think we'd walked about 15 miles in the rain!
Then years later, when Esther was a youngster we all cycled in from somewhere near Wirksworth along the High Peak trail, and sought out waterproofs. There could be a theme emerging here!
and one of Harry's photos - from Buxtonne sur Seine?
It's a glorious place - but does the sun ever shine?
