Back in action....
....albeit only for a couple of weeks before my next operation, after which I will be banned from driving for another four weeks. Ah well, we've got to make the most of things, and that is what we did today.
The day dawned bright, sunny and above all warm, promising excellent top-down motoring.
Our destination was once again the Duke of Westminster's estate and reputedly the place which the Queen most favoured for her retirement, the Bowland Forest and the Trough of Bowland.
Pootling through this lovely area we watched lapwings and curlew plus the inevitable sheep and their newly born lambs and the roadsides were filled with glorious yellow dandelions, bluebells and that wonderful flower of the Spring, primroses.
Brilliant....what a great drive and we also stopped at a local hostelry and imbibed of a 'Pride of Pendle' beer which just hit the spotin the very hot temperatures.
