A Lovely Day For A Walk.

It was the hottest day of the year for some parts of the country; but not here in Yorkshire. It was still a lovely day though; after a few drops of rain early in the morning it brightened up later, and although the sun rarely shone, it was still pleasant and warm...maybe a bit muggy though.

I didn't take the opportunity to visit the Peak District though. I went walking with my friend Chris from Leeds. I met him at Wakefield Westgate Railway Station and we walked along stretches of the River Calder, the Aire and Calder Navigation and the River Aire, to Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve...and then looped back to Castleford.

The route and the countryside was completely different to anywhere in the Peak District, but it was still enjoyable, especially because Chris has personal knowledge of the area.


  1. Hi Lee

    How are you?

    Congratulations on your 100th post!1

    Miss you very much!

    1. Hello Candice. I'm well, thanks; what about you? How did your visit from your mum go...and how are you getting on with your dissertation/project?

    2. Hi Lee!

      I'm busy with my dissertation. I must finish it before next Thursday but I haven't began it yet!!

      How terrible!!

      I argued with my mum two days before she left London though I knew I shouldn't have done that!

      Hope everything goes well for you!

      Best wishes
