Wonky Journal

Journals are day by day things and this isnt.
What's happened so far?

We're hanging out in Nelson and mostly shopping, eating, drinking and playing in the sea. It's nice to be able to mess about in the surf. The last few times I've tried to swim in Britain the cold nearly split my shins.
Nevermind "Can I cope with chilled cahones?", it never got that deep.
Here it's warm and wet.

Just the way I like it.
What do I think of NZ so far?
It's very green and thats no suprise - this evening it rained.
Aparently the Kiwis deny any none sunny weather but I know better.
We went to a New Years street party in the "city" centre, it was wet and cold.
(Midsummer anyone? - no wonder the Brits love that home from home feeling)
Happy Holidays to all
Party Party
"Road" played 2 numbers whi9ch lasted about 1 minute each and then legged it.
We legged it slightly later and put the kinder to bed.
Missed this lot
I wrote this.
More tomorrow.

Feeling "Half Cut")

More Castles than Soft Mick!

We went walking again

Yet another circular route out of a Derbyshire town.
Climb whatever geology has left us to climb.
Hold that height for as long as you can.
Drop back down and drive home.

I'm struggling to avoid the words "classic sunday hike".
I failed.
This one is so classic it's always over-crowded, they've had to put pavement down from Hollins Cross over to the top of Mam Tor and beyond.

Sat just above Crimea Farm (even classic names) having lunch and spotting castles.

Left to right across the vista.

Mam Tor
"a late Bronze Age and early Iron Age hill fort"
Peveril Castle
"Founded soon after the Norman Conquest"
"This rectangular fort ... established in Flavian time"
Burr Hill
I think I made the last one up - research required.
