Walked:21 April 2011
Distance: 11.5 miles

Today I walked the shorter version of my Youlgrave and Lathkill Dale route. Lambing time, gorgeous summery weather. It was very easy to forget that it's still spring, just little signs like some trees still not being in leaf.

What a glorious walk, Pea. Some beautiful shots there for next year's calendar. The two stary sheep cracked me up.

It's funny you should say that, when I unloaded the photos from the camera, I laughed out loud when I saw that one. I have no idea why it's funny. Perhaps it's reminiscent of two old ladies watching the world go by or waiting for a bus. Usually sheep run away as you approach, but these girls just stood there curiously watching me as I passed.

They look dumb, yet strangely menacing.

I did a walk in this area yesterday and noticed that the wording on the sign in Lathkill Dale has reverted back to the original '1d' - one [old] penny, -not 20p.
