A Beautiful autumn morning in the Peaks

To me there is nothing more beautiful than a sun kissed autumn morning walk in the Peak District. In fact to me, there is nothing more beautiful than a sun kissed autumn morning walk wherever you are, but this walk is always especially lovely.

Mark parked his car at Beresford Dale and I parked at Milldale. Two picturesque Peak District places. We both set off planning to meet between the two then walk back to Milldale for a delicious pasty. Mark and Jess walked together while I had my camera for company, and was clicking away whilst singing ‘By the rivers of Babylon’ happily to myself , even though I was actually by the ‘river Dove’ . The wildlife around me didnt seem to mind.

The morning was fresh and chilly, with the ocassional warm rays of the sun to remind us of the change over of the seasons. Jumpers were on then off, but to me it all added to the fun and enjoyment of such a gorgeous invigorating day.

Autumn is well and truly on its way, and the bright red of the berries and rosehips gave me a little tingle of Christmas in the distance. But for now the sights and smells of Autumn will be capturing my thoughts and a poem or two may be written.

We eventually found each other and Jess, having enjoyed a swim was glad to see her mum.

Oh and by the way the pasties were amazing and always are!!

Love Alison x

      1. In my hometown, Grass Valley, California, pasties are popular there. The miners from Cornwall brought their mining skills to work the mines there along with their love of pasties. Every Christmas season the town celebrates a Cornish Christmas and a local church performs as a Bell Chorus. Years ago, theyโ€™d broadcast a choir of miners singing Christmas Carols from inside the mines.

        1. Oh wow Gary, thats so interesting. Such a creative idea to put a meal in a pastry case. I think sometimes they would have meat and veg in on end and the a sweeter version in the other. I can hear the miners singing now!


          1. Hi Alison, I’m a big fan of the Great British Baking Show, Paul Hollywood actually made that a challenge for the bakers a Cornish pastie with savory on one end and sweet on the other, the end result looked delicious.
