Comments

Stunningly beautiful autumn colours. Crunchy underfoot, knee-deep in leaves, and lots of kicking of leaves - very noisy. Rocking table, cuddly toy. Walked along by the river, with lunch stop under a railway viaduct. Two trains passed, but no-one waved back. Friendly dog with a ball, where Lance had to ask for directions (points off!). Swinging bridge. Nice pub with roaring fire where we stopped and bombarded the landlord with 20 notes. Good menu, but no-one there to cook it. There was a Leeds hung sheep and an elephant from Bolton. Later, elusive Roman rocks. Passed a Motocross circuit and a sand quarry. Also saw a spoon tree. Navigation was tricky due to a fork in the road.

Wildlife: "This walk was a load of bull" - at least 3 - and herons (4), dippers, buzzards (2), wrens. Motionless cows (passed through a set of the Avengers). A unicorn (disputed), pig and pelican and a meer-kat. Alarmed a pheasant stuck in the hedge. Odd sunken sheep (remarkably like cows). In the twilight, passed horses in colourful coats.

Evening meal

The Plough at Eastwick. Meal better than expected - in fact, very good. Ashley was influenced by a young girl with a pony tail. Ron came later for a drink.
