    1. Wow Noushka you are really gadding about but I am glad that you are keeping busy. Thanks for the comment and you know that you are welcome if you should come this way so long as we are not gadding about elsewhere :-))) Take care and drive carefully. Hugs Diane

    1. Linda taking a walk along the river would be fantastic, but I walk alone as my husband has problems with his feet. When we are out it is driving only, so all my walks are local but it is so pretty around here and such a wide choice I do not mind. Keep well Diane

    1. So much history everywhere and all of great interest. I wish I now had enjoyed history at school as there is so much to catch up on! Have a good day Diane
