Walking in the Snow

Meikledale Walk

Tom and I with James Armstrong decided to do the Meikledale Walk in the Ewes valley this morning as I needed to look at a fence that had been put up by Buccleuch estates and it needed to have a Stile erected to allow walkers to get accross it. It was without doubt the toughest walk we have done in a long time. The head of the valley is just over 1600ft in height and there was a serious amount of snow still there. We had at times to walk through drifts over our waists and prod our sticks into the snow to avoid deep gullies. The photograph on the left is the road back down the hill and for the first half mile down it was filled with drifting snow so it made walking down it impossible and we had to stay on the rough and difficult terrain at the side of the road. At the end of the walk 4 hours later all 3 of us were exhausted and could hardly walk another step.

I love my Brother

Leo was lying on the rug in front of the fireplace and Hannah had to leave the dinner table to go an give him a kiss and see if he was ok.

Hannah on a Sledge

Hannah was given the use of a sledge this afternoon and boy did she have fun on it. We seem to have gone miles on it in the park and round the icy pavements.
