This summer…

This summer I’m taking part in something pretty exciting…
I’ll be participating in my first cycle sportive the Prudential RideLondon 46 on 30th July. This past weekend I did my first training ride in the Lake District with my Dad.



I’ll be riding for a charity called Bliss who help support premature babies and their families.


My just giving page can be found here.

Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

because spring is here

and I haven’t posted in so long..
Today looked like this..
Some snapshots of a wonderful day off spent with my sister, nephew, Dad, Gran and Auntie.

Road trips to the Lake District

One of my favourite views..

Family walks

Wildflowers

Ewe and her baba.

For me days out like this are so refreshing. I loved capturing some little moments as spring begins.

I never tire of spending time here. 

Evening on the farm

Visited my friend Jack’s farm for Lambing Live yesterday evening. It was so much fun.

Stepping Stones

Quiet moments often linger.
In the stillness

awe struck
Night sky

Stars twinkling 
Sparking thoughts 

of adventure
Stepping stones 

across streams
Waterfalls crashing 

into pools

of running water
Giant vistas overhead

Whispering clouds 

Silhouettes of sun beams
As the path comes into view

New adventures to be had

New adventures in familiar places 

So after my USA adventures.. Another new adventure has begun. I got off a 7 1/2 flight.. Got a train back to Yorkshire. Packed and headed up to Lancashire. 

I am loving being nearer my sister and brother-in-law.. I’m also enjoying lodging with wonderful friends Amy and Matt.

And views like this.

Happy birthday USA.. 4th July Celebrations

  
Had great fun celebrating USA Independence Day with some new friends.. A whole evening early on July 3rd.. The fireworks display was at Long’s Park in Lancaster Pennsylvania. 

It was a little strange to be celebrating the independence of a former British Colony. But still fun.

5. Music
