The title for this morning’s post was “Morning Calm”…. it was from the archives. Trouble is, it certainly didn’t fit with the morning’s weather. More than a little breezy, a wind, not quite gale force, but you get the idea.
Despite that we headed off to Stanton Moor for a leg stretch with great views over Derbyshire. The moor is surrounded by trees. Oak and Silver Birch are the key feature which creates a great approach to the more open moor.
Not many signs of autumn, the trees still look green even though some are a little thinner in the canopy. Round the moor edge Fungi were making a colourful autumnal statement of their own….
Of course, as we always do, we paid our respects to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle. Not another soul about so we could savour the mood and moment… it may not be as big as the famous Stone Henge but it’s just as special…
As the wind was getting stronger (and colder) we didn’t linger long and headed back to shelter and lower ground. Just enjoyed the expansive views from high then made haste.
Fresh and invigorating… but nice to get back to the car and a flask of hot coffee…. and the sun shone throughout so that was a indeed a bonus. 🙂
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
