Shillito Wood / Ramsley Moor / Big Moor Circular - Derbyshire - 29/04/18 - 5.5 Miles - Helen (Molly)

Is that someone's house ?
The cold and the mud doesn't stop me from striding out.
Helen always loses her head when confronted with a difficult gate latch.
It's that sleepy man with the finger again.

Beeley Moor / Gibbet Moor / Chatsworth (Circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 08/04/18 - 8 Miles - Helen (Molly)

Helen and Molly ready for the off.
I strike another of my jaunty poses.
Heading into Chatsworth by which time Molly was starting to get tired.

Birchen Edge (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 07/04/18 - 4.25 Miles - Helen (Molly)

Yes you too can do the same route as us (in an anti-clockwise direction). However to follow our exact footsteps you must stay below Birchen Edge, and remember to tread on the dog's paw.

Chatsworth / Beeley Moor / Gibbet Moor (Circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 14/03/18 - 8.5 Miles

If in doubt, walk Chatsworth.
Follow the fingerpost.
Real men don't look back.
Hoping not to be swept away.

Woodland and Riverside from Grantown-on -Spey - Cairngorms (Scotland) - 27/02/18 - 7 Miles - Helen

Helen bravely enters Anagach Wood.
I bravely enter Anagach Wood.
Then we both get scared.
The mountains are always in view.
Having passed the Cromdale Suspension bridge, we then followed the River Spey.
Lots of Pine trees alongside the river.
Approaching the Old Bridge at Speybridge.
I am not saying it was cold or nothing, but it's the first time I have ever seen icicles.
