Damp in Derbyshire

I had a post all prepared for the August Month in Numbers and when my laptop went down I never got to hit publish. I also took part in Rinda’s Photo Scavenger Hunt during the Summer and missed the deadline for that for the same reason.

I’m sharing a few photos from each today.


Seven nights spent sleeping under the stars in a cosy yurt…..


…..with these guys/gals for neighbours.


Enjoying beautiful houses like those at Biddulph Grange Garden…..


…..and Lyme Park.


Making the most of the sunshine…..


…..and laughing off the rain (on Alexa’s bridge).


Exploring deep underground…..


…..and high on hilltops.


Stopping to smell the roses…..


…..and being grateful for that woodburner!

Thankyou Derbyshire for a wonderful week, despite all the weather threw at us.

What lovely photos Fi :) I really love the sleeping under the stars one ... fabulous.

I seem to have been missing for a while, and goodness what a shock to see how grown up the kids are looking :)

I've always wanted to stay in a yurt! I'll have to do it now it looks much more fun than a boring tent!


alexa said...

Lovely to see your photos, and wish I'd known you were so close! I've often wondered about yurts - a woodburning stove sounds perfect!

Lisa-Jane said...

I need to know more about the yurt! How was it? Glad you found some fun despite the slightly damp weather...

Sian said...

It's a lovely collection of pictures which show what a happy time you had.

We've done Featherdown farm camping, but not a yurt

Alison said...

It looks as though you certainly made the most of the weather Fiona!

I can't believe you were just down the road from me and I didn't know! Next time we will have to meet up :) Love Lyme Park and Biddulph Grange. Where is that turret on the hill?

Jo said...

It looks like you had a great time even though the weather was rubbish, great photos x

Beverly said...

Despite the weather you got some great shots and I am sure created great memories :) I love the outside stairway which also could be a path, yes?
