I went up for a few days, to the Peak District as I’d heard about Mam Tor and the broken road, which had suffered various landslides and so eventually had been abandoned, and it interested me! And it didn’t disappoint!
And as happened, during that week Snake Pass had been closed to cars, as it had a few landslides though not as bad! So rode up that, lovely traffic free climb! And spectacular views!
I did also visit the plug hole! Which was flowing nicely!
Sadly next day was wet! So had Winnats Pass which is a spectacular gorge, and the moors over to the Monsal trail which is a old railway line in a gorge with a truly improbable and impressive amount of tunnels and Viaducts!
I was quite wet and cold by that point so very glad of the cafe in Miller Dale station!
Back over the moors to Castleton, I did have a wee wander up Cavedale gorge, and views to the Castle, again soggy!
Just back from watching Top Gun at Hampton Court, Luna Cinema.
Bit of a mix bag in that we loved watching the film, though it really hasn’t aged well!
But since my balance requires light and hates soft surfaces, and crowds bit of struggle moving about both after the film ended and during as the only toilet was the one in the wilderness so a fair distance in low light.
So I did enjoyed it but I did also endure it so not sure I’d do it again as took a lot of effort, and has made my vestibular system go haywire, which it will do for few hrs yet!
Over a year since COVID19 arrived and a lot has changed some not good, due to the my work some deaths, and it has been hard adjusting for various people.
But most folks I know now have had at least one vaccination if not both. And at least in the uk things are getting brighter, and restrictions are lifting bit by bit. Went out on a bike ride with other people!
I am concerned that it isn’t over, looking at Europe and further away hence the Churchill quote!
