2 trains from B’rum through Derby I arrived in the small town of Belper. Elly drove up in her blue Astra and drove us to Robin’s parents’ weekender in Ashbourne.
Dog Meg was at the door first of course, then there was Robin, much the same as when we’d met him on iChat. Warm and welcoming:-) Dropped my bags then we walked into Ashbourne to look around. There was a street festival, including some acts from Oz – Mr Spin and Skate Naked (see pic). Had lunch at the Florist Cafe, then back to the house and got ready for a walk from Hartington where we bought some yummy cheese. LONG walk with Meg straining at the lead (see pic) along the River Dove’s Wolfescote Dale and Biggin Dale. Drinks at a lovely old building with a YHA with some of our cheese.
Robin cooked us a beautiful barbecue – even Rob would have been impressed!
Then said good night to this lovely couple:-)
