After a weekend of outdoors activity, I am weary but revitalised. Yesterday, we took a trip to Hebden Bridge. Even though I had visited the town several times, I’d never ventured out to the mill at Hardcastle Crags, so that was the plan for the day.
Some parts of the journey had less water than others. How soft do you think the mud in the following picture was?
On the other hand, at least Hebden Water still had something flowing along it.
Today, the outdoor experience has been somewhat different. In spite of the lack of rainfall, the wild flowers at Old Sleningford Farm looked a picture.
And elsewhere there was enough grass and nettles for me try my hand at scything. I had not used a scythe before, given that I think I am allergic to grass and normally the opportunity arises when it is full of pollen. However, the only thing I can ‘complain’ about today is toning up my muscles.
