The unexpected in the Peak District

high edge and dowel dale

This weekend I was meant to be learning to paraglide, but the weather (strong winds) had other ideas, so the two-day course was aborted after the first morning.

As I was in the Peak District and wearing boots, I made the best of it and spent the rest of the day walking.  It was a day for the unexpected:

arms stash at harpur hill

More things I saw on my impromptu walk


The next day I wandered round the spa town of Buxton:

buxton baths

the crescent, buxton

More shots of Buxton

It wasn’t the weekend I’d expected, but I had a great time. And I’ve still got a day and a half of paragliding to look forward to.
