News 2015

We saw some wonderful sights this year, despite many weekends being lost to work or family matters. The village life page shows heavy snowfall and our enjoyment of Twinning Association matters. We had glorious walks locally in Cressbrookdale and Abney, as well as around the village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales. You can see our UK trips to National Trust properties and Crich Tramway Museum, as well as our visit to Charles Rennie Mackintosh properties in and around Glasgow. We went to Bangkok and Phuket in January to catch some winter sun, but caught flu as well. Summer took a long time coming this year, and we sneaked in an extra trip on the Eurostar to friends in the Burgundy.

The highlight of the year was a trip to Sri Lanka. The hill country and the wildlife were amazing and deserved pages of their own to accommodate the many photos that we couldn't leave out.
