We went to see the Aurora last night .. It didn’t show  My thnx to Steve Bradley for his photo taken the night before and of the one he took of my car parked second up the road waiting..Whilst sitting in the cold up at the Barley -Twiston-Downham cross roads decision was made by a concord that we should go off in Hetty Hymer into the Dales to perhaps catch the Aurora in an unlight polluted area

and this is why we have just rolled out of the Railway Inn at Ribblehead … Still no sighting .. The drive up was Autumnly delicious ..lots of golds not quite changed as yet to the reds ..the lime stone of Ingleborough shining white in this early October sunshine and joy of joys there she was The Ribblehead viaduct and a train crossing .. and low and behold a carpark(GPS coords to be published later) with out “Thou shalt NOT park ” signage … Bliss .. An aside ( the pub is with staggering distance )

After the consumption of a pint or two of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord decides again by mutual consent not to eat in the pub even though temptation raised its cash eating head and wander back to our Hetty for the sumptuous supper bought in Booths ,Our over priced new posh supa market ..meat pie .. My own mushy peas and a vanilla slice .. Sounds like comfort food to me .. The evening proved to be warming .. No heating needed .. Waiting now for my supper always cooked by J ..

OMG we never well hardly ever eat out .. Reason why .. Better food cooked by us.. Finished off with a very large glass of red and mature Gauda cheese .. Totally stuffed for about the price of one main course in a restaurant … Burp xxxx

 ..Been outside to see if any celestial light show is happening but no not even a star… That’s it for now .. Ginger biscuits and grapefruit n pineapple green tea and off to bed with a good book .. 9-45pm … Late enough .. Remember we were up till 1-30am yesterday !!

  1. looks like a great spot. Duly noted.
    (managed to get your Scottish winter youtube vid to work – Cold! And slippy i suspect. Not the best of conditions for a front wheel drive motorhome!)

    1. The roads surprisingly not slippy ..clear and dry .. just very cold
      Please go up to Ribblehead ..a nice sunny winters day .. a walk and a bite of supper in the pub’s not posh but suits us
