We’re all going on a summer holiday…

This post has been in draft for a couple of weeks.  I am sorry about that. I have not been well due to the bad cough/chest infection I have spoken about before.

Well now (17June) I am finally feeling better. I still have my cough and I am seeing the doctors tonight to be referred to a specialist. But generally I am feeling better.

We went away on holiday to Derbyshire. specifically Pine lodge holidays in Darley Dale (Pinelodge Holidays).

The holiday was very good (tempered with me not being able to walk very far!).It is a place we have been to many times and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst still having facilities.

Suzanna had a treatment in the spa on site. She has written about it i her blog on her website (Time For Healing).

Whilst we were there, the local Well dressing's were on (Well Dressing). Here are some of the pictures from one village.


There is also a tradition of putting scarecrows around the village (sometimes in unusual places!):

Later in the holiday we went to Bakewell. Home of the famous bakewell tart (or pudding depending upon who you talk to!)

Of course whilst we were there, we just had to stop and have some traditional tart and a cup of tea lol.

The Tarts! lol

All in all it was a very nice holiday. I didn't manage to do anyhting like as much photography as I wanted due to ill health.

But such is life!
