Friday: 10th. June'16..
About time for another update before I forget my daily dose of activities while I am here.. Tuesday was another morning walk through the country park in the Lytham Hall grounds & a small stock up at my favourite shop "Aldi" to fuel me for the walks in Yorkshire & Wednesday was a mother & son bonding day with a lunch date .!!.
An hour & a half's drive from St Annes on Sea on Thursday & I am in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for the next three days..
Staying in the heart of the Dales at the YHA Malham it's the perfect spot for exploring the outstanding landscape & history of the area..Walks & trails range from the easy to the more serious & strenuous for the seasoned trekker.. Me.. Well I'm more for the moderate style & have to keep reminding myself ... Relaaaax.!. I'm here on holiday.!!.
Seeing as I was not due to check in at the YHA until 5pm. I did the just over 7kms (4.5miles) Malham Spectacular yesterday with a couple of slight detours .. An awesome walk on an awesome warm & sunny day, which takes in all the major points of interests with some picturesque scenery and limestone terrain to boot..It's the ideal walk for the first timer here and also if you are limited for time within the area.!!..You also take in part of the famous Pennine Way on most of the walks in the area, including this one...."Simply Breathtaking.!!."
It's a vastly different sort of a day today though, thus giving me time for this update, but according to the weather forecast the rain is supposed to ease this afternoon..Daylight saving helps here too and with the sun not setting till around 10pm. it still gives me plenty of time to get out there and explore more of the region.!!.. A couple of primary school classes from nearby local schools are staying here too & have taken a keen interest in my Aussie flora & fauna pics. on the Macbook while on their lunch break.. With an authoritive teacher's okay obviously.!!. Kangaroos/Koalas/Kookaburras/ Lizards & Snakes..They're fascinated & totally intrigued.!!!!
Well, looks like the sun is trying to push it's way through the clouds so I'd better get moving.!!!!!P6100345.jpgP6100343.jpgP6100335.jpgP6100331.jpgP6100330.jpgP6100326.jpgP6100320.jpgP6100318.jpgP6090308.jpgP6090300.jpgP6090293.jpgP6090280.jpgP6090273
