Who wants to see what I've been doing today?

Andy and I decided that today would be a good day for a drive/walk in our local-ish area, so we hopped into the car and drove across the hills outside of Huddersfield to get to....some even bigger hills just outside of Huddersfield. Here's some photos from the trip...I apologise for the quality of them....the rainy/dull weather was bad enough, but ad ontop of that one hungry and impatient woman and......well tis is the result LOL.
On the motorway - the quickest way into the hills. We were only on here for about 4 or 5 miles. See the bridge? Well I have no idea where that goes but I've always wanted to find it and go up there...I bet the views would be fab. To the left of this picture is a reservoir and more hills, to the right is a steep valley.
The first stop was a place called Hollingworth Lake - this was the furthest place on our route, but we were sizing it up for the potential of a summer picnic and walk. This place looked great and we'll definitely be back in the summer.
The birds (at the lake) were funny, but some of them were a bit vicious to each other...pecking and squaking at each other. Second thoughts, maybe this could be the wrong destination for a quiet summer picnic after all LOL.
This picture shows just how cold it is round here....see the lake is still frozen? This lake is about 8 miles from our house.
And here is a photo to make Tonya jealous....see Tonya? It's a border crossing sign LOL.
What amazes me about this area is that you find a really great view and its spoiled by a bloomig great big string of pylons....grrrrrrrrr.
And onwards....another reservoir...
And then a stop at Booth Wood Reservoir, this reservoir is near where we live but we've never stopped here before. This place has some amazing statistics...
But you really wouldn't want to swim here....risk of cardiac arrest the sign says...
Had a nice lunch here. So there you have it....a couple of hours in the life of  Lou & Andy x

Wow! Very nice views, I think you are gonna have to visit Oklahoma/Arkansas to go swimming Cardiac Arrest!! Scary!

Tonya @ Live the Adventure said...

OK Louise, I know you wouldn't have even taken that picture but to make me jealous! You probably planned the whole trip just to get that picture!!! LOL That's too funny! Looks like you had a great time and I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of where you live. It looks like I may just have to cross the ocean to finally get a good border crossing pic- that's the secret, isn't it?! LOL

LOL Tonya, I passed the first sign and then I remembered you and your multiple attenpts to snag a border cross pic...I just couldn't resist :)

ShaRhonda, it does get warm round here in summer but never for a long enough period of time to get lakes warm. I really need to move somewhere warmer!

It seems we were both a sanctuaries on Saturday. We took the kids to a bird/animal sanctuary for a nice late winter walk. The weather cooperated and it was a nice 3 C out. I forgot to take pictures but we are planning to go again, now that we found it.

Hi girly,
I've been on your Adori Graphics site for the past 3 days. Changing this and fixing that on my blog. Thanks for all the great advice and easy to understand instructions.
I do have a question for you, how do people get their own button designed? I'm putting one of your buttons on my blog tomorrow. It's 12:30 a.m here in California and I'm too tired to figure anything else out tonight :)

Hi Paperflora,

I have some info here on how you can order a custom button. Just email me if you;re interested and I'll add you to the queue.
