Once Upon a Time……


Nine Ladies, Stanton Moor, Derbyshire

Once upon a time……  we enjoyed the freedom to roam, at will.  Two years ago to the day we had just past the Spring Equinox.  So off to Stanton Moor we headed, to pay our respects to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle.  It does seem so long ago, a different world.

Stanton Moor is not a location that is that far away from us…..  but too far under the current Covid Lockdown restriction.

There are suggestions that rules may be eased in mid April maybe May.  I do hope so.  I am not looking to dash off to the far corners of the country and certainly not abroad……   just to be able to have the freedom to broadened our horizons that little bit further afield.  

Even when that freedom arrives, we will need to exercise care to avoid returning to square one…  so

Please Remember to ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

  1. Your last sentence is the most important one of all! In the old days belonging to the large sail ships, infecting our Earth might take as much as 3-5 years. Today we manage in less than a week! (If we are not very careful!)

    1. I fear we will resume travel, both overseas and across our counties far too soon. As for restrictions, i fear that there is a minority, that is getting larger, that already ignore the rules and risks.


      1. Good to, hear….and Predictive Text can always be relied to mess up your text…as moors go, talking of the landscape, turned into something else!
