So on Saturday we decided to 'head up t'Dale' (to be read in a broad Yorkshire accent) - it was such a gorgeous day made all the more wonderful by the weather being so unexpected!
Typically, I forgot my camera so had to make do with my trusty phone but still managed to capture the essence of the day.
First stop, Yockenthwaite for paddling & splashing and general high jinx!
Followed by a hunt for a pub that was still serving food (we were late due to the aforementioned fun - a good reason to be late in my book) - this took us to the White Lion at Cray which, sadly, wasn't doing food but did do a fine pint of Golden Pippin :)
NB the menu on the chalk board looked delicious - gutted we missed the serving time!
So after a quick pint here and another paddle for George and some very picturesque stepping stones, it was back down the Dale to Kettlewell where food (& more Golden Pippin & the Grand National on the box) was sought, and found.
But not after stopping for traffic...haha!
and admiring a rather fabulous, hillside procession of sheep
All in all, a very pleasant way to spend a sunny, Sunday in April
