    1. Yes, my walking motivation – in fact my motivation for anything – comes and goes at the moment. I was on duty at Fountains. Tough work, but someone has to do it.

    1. We-ell. Rain is forecast this week. But in our case, it’s not the right answer – we’re snatching a few days holiday in Scotland, and rain was not supposed to be part of the deal! Never mind, the farmers may be pleased!

  1. One of my favourite places, lovely to return there today with you! Even better though i can leave a comment – I am so behind on posts I’ve discovered that you close your comments after a while and so have missed out on telling you how fabulous your book posts and virtual escapes have been. They are been wonderful πŸ™‚

    1. I don’t close my comments! No deliberately anyhow. I’ve only recently noticed that it happens, and I haven’t a clue how to put it right! Thanks for the positive thoughts though.

      1. well that’s just bizarre – sounds like your global settings have switched to a time limit on them. If you go to Settings and then Discussion you should be able to see what the time limit is

      2. oh I was going to go back and leave comments but the unticking doesn’t seem to have altered the posts in the past 😦 so here’s a little wave from me to say again how much I love all the posts in September xx

  2. Ah Fountains – not sure when I’ll be over to see it again sigh 😦 I loved your tour of Bamberg by the way but comments now closed so am writing here instead. I adore those pretty German towns on the river with the half-timbered buildings. We stayed in Mainz on the Rhine last year for nearly a week and used it as a touring base. We’ve been lucky enough to go this region before – am so glad we did the trip again last year as the world has changed a lot since then!

    1. I’ve sorted out the Comments Closed thing, though it won’t work retrospectively. WP gremlins – grrr. I know, travelling’s not a thing just now is it? I’m glad we bloggers have preserved memories for ourselves as well.

      1. No problem as I just commented on the next available post. No travel is definitely not a thing right now – no way of leaving WA at present even if I wanted to and really feel it’s safer to stay put. Long haul flights will not be a pleasant experience for a long time. Yes so glad I started this blog as it really preserves memories, reminds me of what we’ve done and also hopefully helps others to enjoy some virtual travel or be inspired when the world does open up again.
