I couldn't resist sharing some scrummy scenery with you. These were taken while driving home to Wensleydale via Dentdale from Kendal in the Lake District. We'd just dropped our daughter off at Kendal train station (our nearest main line) and were enjoying a leisurely drive home. We're so lucky to live here, although we didn't think that on the return journey to pick her up from the station a couple of days later. This road was closed so we had to use a diverted route causing a 3 hour round trip! The hills you can see are the Howgill Fells near Sedbergh.
The usual 'nose to tail' traffic!
We're now in Dentdale and yes, that is snow on the hill tops.
The road runs side by side with the river. You can just see it at the other side of the wall.
Just behind the houses is the viaduct where we'll start the climb up out of the valley, up over the tops of the fells back to Wensleydale.
All you can see from here is hill tops! It's like being on top of the world.
Not far now, nearly home.
We're now dropping down into Wensleydale. I'm afraid the photos don't do it justice.
Home sweet home. You can see the church steeple to the right and the school bell tower in the centre. The white building at the end of the road is one of our four village pubs!
I hope you enjoyed our little spin? There would have been more photos but halfway through the journey my daughter phoned to say she'd missed her train connection in Wolverhampton which caused myself and her Dad much worry and unsettled chuntering for the rest of the journey! Kids eh!
Till next time

PS. On the 5th July the Tour de France will be riding through our little village and up over the Buttertubbs Pass. Lets hope the sun shines.
