Millington Pastures ‘Run’

For the past week or so I have been back in the UK, visiting my dad in Hull, my friends in York and my daughter, Sarah, and her boyfriend Karl, in Sheffield.   I’m glad to report that my 93 year old dad is now fit and well and back home after another short spell in hospital.

While in York I played golf (though not very well) with my good friends Martin, Ian and Janice, but I have no pictures of that, so let’s move quickly on…  The following day I managed to go for a 10.5 mile (17k) run / jog / walk / stop and take some photographs with my mate Pete.  It’s a favourite run of his around the Yorkshire Wolds from Millington.   The route goes up and down and sometimes along the dry glacial valleys, so it’s a great workout.  Though as it was only my second run since my marathon in April, I hope you will understand why I concentrated more on the stop and take photographs part… 🙂

      • 😂😂😂 you came to visit the uk in summer with no wet weather gear!😂😂 I suppose umbrellas are cheap here……


        • You are right to laugh… I checked the forecast on Monday (last week), before I set off and it said it would be warm and dry – that is for all the week I was here… (I’m used to the forecasts being right you see!) But, as it turned out, I played golf and only got a few spots of rain on the 17th; it was completely dry during my ‘run’ with Pete and then we only had a little drizzle early on during this walk, which dried as soon as it stopped. So, all in all, I was pretty lucky. They say the sun shines on the righteous! 🙂


    • Yes, it was a mixture of paths, fields and some tarmac road. (All public rights of way of course). I hope you liked the cute little bunny! (That was where we found him and when we left him he was in the grass at the top of the picture – so, he was off the road).

    Rumour has it that Pete took a stunning photo of you in the barley.
    Can’t find it.
