Castleton home of the Peak Cavern known colloquially and not very politely as the Devil's Arse. Set off on the short walk into town before dawn so as to have the place to ourselves.
Cave Dale, I was intending to walk the ridge around the head of the Hope Valley, we managed as far as the next bend before it became obvious that the soft snow was defeating Molly, to be honest it wasn't doing much for me. She was bogged down I was blowing like a traction engine. (Very restrained, for me, could have done with the moon enlarging).
Win Hill taken on the way home, almost perfect weather. If the day temperatures would just rise a little the snow would crust over and become walkable. Doesn't look as if it will so tomorrow will go to York and hopefully get some snowy pictures of the Minster.
Water is becoming a problem, already have a sink full of washing up, upon recollection I seem to remember a sink full of washing up in August! Still have got gas now and plenty of Lynx deodorant, it was on offer in Morrisons so purchased three tins just prior to New Year. Was considering asking for a refund as I have seen the advertisements showing nubile ladies throwing themselves at the wearer of this product. For some indecipherable reason this has not happened------maybe he had a shower first!!
