A Few Days Away.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just reporting back after a few days away with Her Ladyship.

    We've been swanning around the Derbyshire Dales having great fun going to so-far un-visited places. 2 places that stick out as being really interesting was this working tram museum at Crich where we indulged in a spot of nostalgia for days gone by:

    This next place has to be the coldest place in England at this time of year. It's a peak well out in the wilds called "Mam Tor", and whilst not a particularly difficult climb, it was as windy as hell but also absolutely freezing. We made it in the end, but it was also wreathed in mist which spoiled what is meant to be a stunning view from the top.

    One place that I always wanted to visit is Chatsworth House as it's one of the finest examples of stately homes to be found in the UK. Unfortunately it doesn't open until April, so we had to content ourselves with it's beautiful outdoor appearance, this is what we saw:

    We came home this afternoon, tired but happy from a very enjoyable break.

    The only thing wrong with the shot of the Chatsworth House is, I didn't take it. Your sharing these photos is really appreciated. Bug

    Welcome home, Eman and HL!

    Beautiful shots those. That historic house seemed familiar - was it used for a TV series?

    And the best of all - a tram! I felt like being back in Holland, except theirs are single deckers.

    My most favourite is a trolley bus. Remember those? Now did you catch up with all the news? There's the 5-0 result, and Harry wants to sign DiCanio. How about that, eh?

    Cheers, Ozzie
