Today Tina and I decide to drive to Grosmont, about eight miles inland, and walk either side of the Esk valley in a sort of circle. We are lucky with the weather, it only rains briefly, and enjoy a day of varied scenery, from bleak moors to lush river valleys - all in a manageable distance. A railway passes through the valley, and we miss a steam train by moments on a couple of occasions, so no railway photos for me.
"Onward Christian Soldiers" seems to be the song I can't get out of my head this morning. All together now: "With the cross of Jesus, going on before!"
In the evening we get a take away curry which is delicious. There is always too much and we gorge ourselves.
