........as well as walking off the effects of extra rich festive food! On Boxing Day we were ready for a walk in the fresh air. Ilam, near Dovedale, seemed like a good choice for a walk.
The church was shrouded in mist
It was quite cold (I forgot my gloves!) - the path on the other side of the bridge was closed for safety reasons after the storms earlier in the week.
Someone had been playing 'Pooh Sticks' under the bridge
The trees were looming out of the mist
I love to see stark, winter trees etched in the grey gloom of a damp wintry mist
They often look as beautiful as they do in the height of Spring and Summer
We went into the church for a short while
Inside it was decorated in simple fashion
With a nativity scene
and a tree
back outside the village and hills were still shrouded in mist
but at least some cobwebs had been blown away!
