A place to stray…..

Just Driving Through…………

Yesterday, I travelled through parts of the Peak District and I was bowled over by the absolute beauty of the hills and valleys and the way the earth has been moulded into deep gullies and folds. There were thousands of sheep, cows (and even some free-range chickens), for miles around, precariously feeding on the side of steep hills or on rocky out-crops. The houses and farms looked slightly desolate, probably because of the mottled-grey colour of the stone, which was echoed in the dry-stone walls edging the fields. The sun shone one minute and the next moment we were in thick fog. The roads became giant roller-coasters taking us up high into the mist and then plummeting us down into the sunlit dales. At one point the fields were glowing with a yellow-green haze, which seemed luminous and breath-takingly beautiful. I will have to go back there.

You can't find beauty much greater than this
