Holiday 14 (part1)


Just back from a weeks holiday in Millers Dale in the Peak District . We normally camp in the Spring but with the dog we decided it would be easier to hire a static caravan , it was rather nice in its own secluded piece of ground .


Here we see Mrs K enjoying a burger .


Charlie enjoys a barbecue as well !


The barbecue from hell ! - it was prone to collapse at the least provocation - shedding hot ashes everywhere !


We were lucky with the weather and we got a lot of walks done . Here we are in Dove dale - famous for Issac Walton's 'Complete Angler' .


We got there early and avoided the crowds .


A Heron - posing for a photo - very obliging .


Further up the dale - the famous stepping stones.


Spires in the woodland.


Dramatic scenery and very nice weather !.


The River Dove .


We leave the Dale to complete our circular walk .



Charlie finds a plastic bucket to play with !


The Peak District at its best !.


Towards the end of the walk thing got a bit Alpine ! - here Mrs K  scales the North Col .


Charlie of course is first to the top !.


A well earned drink and rest ! . More to follow ....
