Ever had one of THOSE weeks?
Who hasn’t? Everything slips through your fingers, like butter. Catastrophe slides in upon catastrophe. If you read my Richmond post earlier this week, you’ll know that things didn’t quite go to plan on Monday. Still, I managed to have a lovely day. So when I met my Nordic walking friends on Thursday, I should have known I was the jinx.
The plan was to meet at Grosmont, on the North York Moors, ride the steam train as far as Goathland, then walk back to our starting point. We’ve already done this earlier in the year, and I wrote about it in Steam’s up in North Yorkshire. Someone forgot to consult the railway timetable, however, and in November- guess what?- there are no trains. Ah well! We’re all relatively fit, and fortunately, it was again a pleasant day, so- a double dose of Autumn colour. We walked there and back again, just stopping for our picnic and a brief look around in Goathland.
The village of Goathland appears regularly as Aidensfield on the TV programme, “Heartbeat”, and attracts lots of visitors because of that. It was lovely to see it bereft of people on a crisp Autumn day.
Eventually we had to set off back again. The shadows were lengthening by the time we approached Grosmont.
How to salvage the good out of a “dis-aster, Darling”! (You do watch “Strictly”?)
Hope your week was better organised than mine, but no less lovely. Many thanks to Cath at Show My Face for the opportunity to share. The header and links will help you join in, and see what everyone else has been up to.
