A day’s walk – change of plan

Standard

Set off with the intention of exploring beyond Malham, but low cloud and little visibility necessitated a change of plan. Back in Settle a walk along the Ribble as it flows towards Lytham (near Blackpool) reaped rewards.

First a dipper.  I love watching these tough little tubbies as they dunk and dive, swim under gushing water and, if they’re lucky, pop up with a snack.

A break in the cloud threw a sliver of sunlight over Settle, albeit briefly.

Life in the Dales: shifting sheep from one pasture to another; cattle enjoying the comfort of a barn; a nosey tup taking a break from the girls!

Ruined barns and dwellings make you wonder

Who? What? When?

Back in Settle a local lurks – look out birdies!
