Sunday lunch as I promised: the best garlic mushrooms I have ever tasted. Then fish pie with salmon, haddock and prawns. Ate too much so no dessert, just coffee and a chocolate.
The farmer meanwhile, much more healthily, climbed Penn Hill in Wensleydale with seven friends, so I leave you with a lot of photographs which he took. The weather was glorious, the sky clear. I hope it stays that way for the eclipse tonight. If you look in the distance of one of the photographs you will see Bolton Hall - the home of Lord Bolton (Orde-Powlett) and splendid building on the banks of the River Ure. Enjoy.
The stone 'plinth' on the topmost point is where the beacon is lit for special occasions (like The Millennium). Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful place?
