On our way home we had been invited to stop overnight with friends just north of Stamford.

Angie and David have a lovely house in the country with plenty of scope to walk locally from the door.

Sherran and Bill, our mutual friends, were also able to travel over to see us while we were here.

Add Angie and David's granddaughter, India and that makes seven.

Dylan settles in pretty quickly, remembering that Moss has a comfortable bed just inside the front door.

" You mean to say it wasn't put here for me ? "


" Lunch al-fresco " . . . southern suntans on display !

While we were there we enjoyed several walks through the woods . . . amalgamated here into one photo set.

Their house is a fine old building of local stone, once part of a larger set of estate 'cottages'.

In the garden the apples on their trees are more advanced than ours . . . time to pick them soon.

" Short, medium and tall " as we stroll through the woods.

Dylan and Moss had a great time exploring.
I chose to catch photos instead.

The ladies in conversation no doubt , as they make their way along the woodland paths.

Spot the butterfly . . . . no, not the sycamore seeds on the top leaf.

Possibly a Wood White, Green Veined White or even a Holly Blue . . . help please !

No butterflies . . . I just liked the contrast between light and dark !

" Thistle with visitor "

At the top of the woods, where some trees have been harvested, the owner has re-planted new stock.

Down by the river now.

The area has matured nicely after landscaping work a few years back.

The water is a little greener than would be desired

but this is a large pond amongst the trees for what is quite a small stream.

We meet neighbours of Angie's

who have a little summer house in the woods

and so stop to chat for a while.

The little lodge has a simple barbecue facility

and no doubt they can enjoy

nice evenings down here.

Today the weather is calm

and the pond is offering great reflections

of the tree on the opposite bank.

Every lake has to have a boat of course . . . just to add adventure.

[ Please note all the paths used today are on private land and therfore not accessible to the general public.]

Back home David is nearing the end of a labour of love . . . the restoration of an old Audi Quattro.

Us boys spend a few minutes discussing the intricacies of such a task.

Time to leave . . . we pack the car ready for our journey back home.

Oops . . . this is the wrong photo . . . young Moss is too young !

That's better . . . the trio now . . . Moss has matured since we first saw him just before Christmas last year.

A big thank you to Angie and David for their hospitality on our journey north, back to Cumbria

and great to meet up with Sherran and Bill again.
