Today M and I have been married for 12 years (together 21 years this year), so to celebrate, we went for a nice walk and bought lots of lovely snacks and treats. Due to the way the world is at the moment we did not want to go to a restaurant or pub for a meal. We were not too sure where to go as we tend to drive for hours to go somewhere different, but again due to COVID there are so many places in Yorkshire and Lancashire that are said to be hotspots, so that was out too, and I love to walk on the moors in the footsteps of the Brontes as it is rugged and wild.

We finally set on Lydiate where I grew up and walked along the old railway lines from where Lydiate station used to be back in Victorian Times. (1884 to 1952) and headed south along the lines, then on to the canal bank back to the car. All told we walked 6km. The dogs loved it and are currently sleeping. Mazikeen must have run (as she does not walk anywhere) about 20km, back and forth.

I took a few photos along the way which are below, including some yarn bombing along the way.

    Happy anniversary, you two! Sounds like you all had a very lovely day. Hopefully the girls didn’t get too worn out, but 20 km is quite a bit for one Mazikeen. She practically ran a half-marathon from the sound of things!

      We had a lovely relaxing day thanks. I think it wore her out completely, today we went to the field and when we got back she has done nothing but sleep, not interested in her food either, so its between being shattered, or the other posibility is that she is coming into season which is due about now.
