This morning the sky is beautiful, blue and cloudless.
On Wednesdays we usually have use of the car (hubby cycles to work 3 days a week) which allows us to broaden our horizons a little. I don't generally like to go too far as I feel that unneccessary lengthy car journeys are not very friendly either to the environment or to the pocket. From a pocket protection point of view, I also don't like to frequent places which charge for the pleasure of visiting...
...So we start off with a visit to a park in one of the nearby villages, the attraction being that it's one that we've not been to before.
One of the many large marble balls that are dotted about.
We don't linger too long, but do stop to take a closer look at Aslan on his plinth.
I'm still not satisfied though with our little outing and decide to drive a little further to where there's a viewpoint...
...aaah, that's better!
Zooming in a little closer, beautiful!
I used to pass this view every day on the way to work. It was one of the pleasures of working - that and the tattie scone & fried egg rolls they did in the canteen for breakfast, mmm!
