This morning we walked in the Manifold Valley - I know I've blogged about this place many times before but it never fails to delight me.
We parked near Wetton Mill and took the pathway towards Thor's Cave.
The little tortoiseshell cat that belongs to the farm and cafe was sunning itself on one of the picnic tables.
The sun was peeping through the mist over the top of the trees
The air was really warm more like an early September day than an early October one!
The warm breeze was rippling through the trees and blowing leaves in gentle spirals down to the ground
Most of the cow parsley was looking like this but I found some more
still looking fresh and new
By the time we turned around to walk back to the Mill the sun was high in the sky
We walked back over the old bridge towards the river
where another of the Mill cats was waiting to greet us.
We drove back towards Froghall and decided to have some lunch at the station. A train was waiting on the platform. It had Shrewsbury as a destination on one end and Scarborough at the other - I thought it would be nice to go to either places on a day like today.
We had coffee and sandwiches in the cafe
There are Halloween and Santa Special trains from here - booking now.
Yet another cat out to say hello - this time the station cat - taking advantage of this super warm weather!
