Pooches in the Peaks

Just a quick report in from the Derbyshire Peak District where we are staying on holiday this week.  Internet access is a bit sketchy as I am connected by a dongle.  I was a bit dubious about one of these but it managed to find a signal enabling me to hook on.

After a full English breakfast in Bakewell this morning, we went for a 5 mile walk from the Longshaw Estate walking below Burbage Edge and then climbing up to Higger Tor amongst all the big boulders.

We then had to clamber down the other side and walk back along the valley.  For the end of November the weather was fantastic although foggy in some places.

The dogs had a great day and walked and ran far longer than 5 miles with all the running ahead and back to us again. Raven particularly enjoyed the rock climbing although Tillie was less sure.

Both of them are now crashed out and sleeping for Britain back at our holiday cottage.  I hate to tell them that there are several more days of walking yet!

  3. What a beautiful walk you all went on! I think Greyhounds are such gorgeous dogs. They are on my maybe someday list of breeds.

    Thanks for stopping by our blog earlier,
