A Day Out.
I am relishing the freedom of being able to drive again and today I drove through Wensleydale to Sedbergh to meet my God-daughter for lunch there. It was a grey day.
All the way along the route farmers had grass down for second-crop silage but there was slight rain on the windscreen of the car so the grass would not be drying.
I called in Westwood's very large second-hand Bookshop and found a Larkin book which had his 'Lines on a Young Lady's Photograph Album' in it. S read this at our Poetry meeting in the week - it really is such a lovely poem, so now I can read it whenever I wish to.
I stopped on the top of Sedbergh Moor on my return journey just to take this photograph of the Howgills for you to see. The valley on the right is the one which holds Cautley Spout - a superb waterfall. You can also see plenty of heather in full bloom - a delightful sight which would have been even better had the sun been out.
