Four of us decided to go for a walk in The Cheviots as it was my last day in Northumberland before I headed off to Yorkshire to meet my cousins for the first time in my life.
the Cheviots in the distance
slightly different angle looking towards the Cheviots
panorama view on the drive to the Cheviots
mum and babies wandering along the track at beginning of our walk
they took off when they saw us then stopped further up the track and watched us approach
3 old dears, Mags and me with our walking sticks. Leslie didn't need one as she is younger than us lol.
the farmhouse..I think it was his farm we were walking through.
a babbling brook
babbling brook a bit further along
the road ahead
taken just round the corner from the photo above
scenery along the way
there they go, striding ahead and leaving me behind
more of the views as we walk
the girls looking for the waterfall we were meant to be heading for, they decided that it was over a mile further on and as it was getting late
(took this on my phone camera so not that good.)
we turned around about here and headed back
almost back at the farm
spotted this pheasant..all the ones I had seen so far were when we were in the car and they would take off as soon as we stopped for me to take a photo.so captured my 1st pheasant.
then as we were driving home I managed to get this one through the windscreen. They are a novelty to me as we don't have them in Australia in the wild...I was amazed at how many we saw on the roads. Bit like we see Kangeroos on our roads.
then he decided to strut across the road as bold as you please as we sat in the car and waited for him
one last stop on the way home, Mags wanted to show me the only thatched pub in Northumberland at Etal. It is a source of pride for the north east apparently.
