We're spending the weekend with family near Durham, and having a proper Winter Weekend in the Countryside. Many adventures have ensued.
I rode Benjamin, the fell pony (we mostly agreed on speed and direction, and I didn't fall off, so I'm considering it a success). Cantering was NOT going to happen, according to Ben. Fair enough.
We went on a wintry walk with two naughty labradors. (One pictured below, between naughty moments.)
We saw nice rolling hills and dry stone walls.
We wore green wellies to match our green jackets.
We found a snowy mini pinecone.
We found a wintry forest with sun behind it.
And found a micro-climate road with sun, trees and blue sky. Shut UP. Blue sky. Really. I had to take its picture to prove that it does, in fact, exist.
