Mam and Dad and I met with Mark and Rosie at Ingleton Falls for a walk, I should have learned from Hamsterly, Mark Bickley's idea of not many steps.... An amazing if long walk, thoroughly enjoyed it, but would set of a little earlier next time and take a flask.
`Time is now marching along quickly and Christopher and I have an evening at Bishop Auckland Castle to see the Kynren event, https://elevenarches.org/kynren an amazing event, non-stop colour and action spectacular, a must see. About 4 hours before we were due to go to the venue we had a covering of hail stones, however the show must go on and the evening turned out cool but clear and dry, I did need the fleece blanket for around my legs though.

Too soon I am on my way to Hayleys for the last few days of my visit, joined by mam and dad it was a lovely ending to a fabulous trip, for all my friends I did get to see but didn't get photo's of, I enjoyed the G&T's, lunches and coffees, it was good to spend time with you all. For those I missed this visit, I am sorry I ran out of time but there will be other visits when we will get together and have a catch up over a cup of something. So the last few days were very special...
