On Saturday all the grandchildren were busy so we adults went off to Bolton Abbey for a walk along the river. 'S' could not believe that we had not done the walk before when we visited the Abbey, but this was a first for us. As we left the car the sun was trying to poke out of between the clouds, but further along the mist sort of hung around a bit more giving an eerie feel to the walk (which I hope I have captured on at least one of the photos.
|There is a touch of blue in the sky|
|I might need this on the way back. but it doesn't look too comfy|
|Is he going to test it....No the seat was wet|
|Younger ones striding out|
|Bit of mist in the distance, but can you see the water is rushing by|
|It had rained most of the night and you can see where the water has ended up|
|Wonder if white water rafting goes on here?|
|This is the road to fairyland|
|Now you can see the mist on the water|
|This looks totally flooded,|
|and this mini island looks like its floating away.|
|The route completed now we just have to drive the car back across this bridge....look at the width!!|
While we were in Yorkshire I did get a bit more knitting done, and as you can see only just had enough yarn Phew!
|Just love the patterns that appear|
Last but not least, when I went to Alli Palli I bought a kit from here. I made a larger bauble about 6 years ago and had forgotten how enjoyable they are to make, and as these ones are smaller and not so time consuming as the large one I might just make a few more.
|Love the white on white|
This week will see me pleating up some fabric for my lady smockers so not sure I will have much time for anything else, but I suppose there are always the evenings and more socks to knit!.
Till next time x x
