Well we have almost reached the end of 2016. This year has flown by and I have been very remiss in not keeping my blog up to date. I expect that it might figure in my New Year resolutions. For the moment this is the image used on our Christmas cards this year. It was taken on a long weekend break in the Lancashire Pennine. I used to cycle here in my teens but this visit was from the comfort of my car. We were blessed with a snowfall on the first night and bright blue skies and sunshine thereafter. I hadn't been back for over 50 years and it felt good to take in the familiar scene again.
