The hottest day so far ( up to 28c) and we went for a 5.5 mile walk! ( must be mad!)
A photo taken at the beginning of our walk today.
From North Rigton, to Burn Bridge and back. ( Nr Harrogate)
Through some lovely countryside.
The farmers are busy haymaking, and this is the tallest haystack I have seen.
I do like these oblong bales better than the round ones they do these day, which are then wrapped in black plastic.
You can see how high it is as M & R aren't midgets!
We haven't see our walking friends since before we went on holiday, so it was nice to catch up with every one's news, and as usual have a good laugh!
So glad we parked outside a pub at the beginning of our walk.
When we got back that cold pint of shandy tasted wonderful, as we sat outside.!
If I have the energy will now go and make tea!
Hope you are all enjoying the hot weather!
The title reminded me of this man.
