If that was our weekend, we've greedily used it all up.
Well, Youngest has just completed his two day DofE walk and is now in full recovery mode on the settee.
There was an awful lot of organising and packing of haversacks and planning of menus and first aid kits leading up to his challenge.
Can you tell?
Let me give you a hint - I was sitting in the sun (I may have mentioned this) and the bees were on the other side of the garden.... Oh by the way, there will be a few photos in this post.
Then as the afternoon gently became dusk, we went out for an evening picnic up in the Dales. On our return journey we stopped so I could take a photo of the most delicious warm peach coloured sky.
When the boys were young, this rocky ghyll was the lair of dragons and home for fairy folk.
As the boys grew, the dragons faded and the fairy folk become invisible..... fortunately I see them still.
From the cairn, out of the biting wind, we sat with our backs against the moorland grasses. Below the village where we were to meet Youngest. Suddenly we saw he'd returned and Himself set off to bring him up to our picnic spot. I took this picture with my original lens......
I trained my lens on my boys right up to the car. I am so so so loving this new toy of mine - did I mention that this post might be a little image heavy?
We also spotted this little feathery harbinger of summer! Yay!
I am quite happy that yes - this ONE swallow is definitely making our summer - especially on such a glorious day smile emoticon
Like I said - our weekend was deliciously sun-filled.
Thank you for popping in and spending time with us, Monday tomorrow - bring it on!
