The Ure is a beautiful river and drops rapidly in this area over a series of waterfalls and rapids. Below Berry's it is calmer, and tree lined, in beach at this point, with an island full of newly planted saplings and a ladder to a viewing point, presumably to see the proliferation of wildlife which inhabits the area. On the way back we stumbled across an enormous Fairy ring......... full of frilly mushrooms... We didn't take any to eat because we're not knowledgeable in these things and might poison ourselves...... We had walked for over an hour and then returned to the cafe for lunch.
We had a glass of water to start, just to re-hydrate then an enormous BLT with a home made chutney and a large garnish of coleslaw and salad leaves..... followed by a large coffee for Max and a very well dressed Hot chocolate for me... I needed a spoon to reduce the cream and marshmallow topping so I could actually take a slurp from it.... Yum.... a real treat! We had met at 11.00....... and when we looked at the clock it was after 3.00.........
.......... Good company always makes time fly!
Douglas is trotting around with a new spring in his step, and is full of beans... with a large helping of confidence!
Molly had another night inside with all her friends, and all segregated from Vincent this time. This morning she was so much happier, she didn't go up to where she'd had her lambs and only "barred" to say goodbye.... she has no sign of any problems with her udder but there was a little discharge around her rear.... She is very much better in herself, so I'm not too worried about her.... We will continue to keep a close watch on her! .......... and thank you for your interest and your lovely good wishes for them both!
