Following the doctors orders

So this week the doctor suggested some gentle walking.  Hurray!!! And the weather was kind enough too.  The sun almost had a little strength to it!

 We went for a stroll around Winscar Reservoir which is up in the Pennine Moors (1,790 feet above sea level!) and they still have snow.  My Grandad (who knew a thing about the outdoors), always used to say that if snow lingers, it will take another downfall to take it away.  So be warned!
I found you a heart too!
 It was such a relief to get out and about and feel fairly normal again.
 It's amazing to think that this stunning scenery is less than 20 minutes drive from home.


 Another 5 minutes drive took us to the top of the world - well that's what it felt like.
 Standing on Holme Moss moor, you can see all down the Holme Valley and over to the furthest outreaches of West Yorkshire.
Don't blue skies make you feel much much brighter! xxx

Lovely photos Diane, we couldn't resist the sunshine either but I fear your Grandad may be right as winter hasn't finished with us yet! Xx

A bit of sunshine does make all the difference, especially coupled with the days starting to get longer.

So glad you are getting out and about again - some gebtle walking sounds good and those views are stunning. Your grandad's prediction will probably be right as more cold weather is on the way later next week but haven't the last few days been wonderful and cheering?

It is always lovely to see your pics and join you on your travels, Diane. Hope you are doing OK. Yes, a bit of fresh air, blue sky and beautiful scenery are definitely good for the soul.
PS. Chatted with Debs on Thursday at Chesterfield, you should pop over to the market, you'd love it! xx
