Let’s face it, it has been miserable in November. However finally the weather broke and I had chance for two quick walks, the first was up Cox Tor and the second a cracking little walk with my two boys around Peek Hill. My eldest tried out my old camera that I have given to them and so that they both had a camera I gave mine to my youngest so he could have a stab. At least half of the photos are his so he did a great job and it was great to get out and stretch the legs.

Hazy views but at least there’s no rain!!
