may bank holiday (may 3rd)

(i forgot all about this day trip! i told you i don’t know where may went too….)

a day off for andy so we headed up to derby (pronounced dArby) for the day. this is the area (kinda) that we went camping last august, and have been times before but not to these particular rocks, called The Roaches. we have a photo on our wall of us and simon on the rocks back in 2004 and wanted to find the same rocks but ended up at different ones, but could see the others. its a place for climbers who are learner to rock climb and those who do know. we just walked along the path. unfortunately i don’t have many photos as i was sure the battery would die any moment! (of course it didn’t….)

would love to go back with a carrier for ezra as we had to leave our stroller at the bottom (hadn’t thought about it!) and carried him in our arms. a bit tiring! there are some lovely wee villages around, the one we stopped in for some food is called Leek =)
