96: Meet me at the Prancing Pony

They didn't quite get it right with the name (I'm guessing copyright got in the way) but they ran with the theme!
On Tuesday, late afternoon, the boy and I made our way over to Eric, ready to pick him up for a trip to the Peak District. Not having yet visited the area together, we thought it'd be nice to spend two nights at a randomly-chosen campsite (ok, ok, the slightly LOTR/Hobbit-esque name may have had something to do wih it) and spend time walking through the Peaks to see what it had to offer us. 

Turns out, it had plenty (including the incredibly British, ever-changeable weather) ....

Don't sheep look incredibly cute and cuddly when they haven't been shorn? Like shaggy-haired pups!
The colours really were this bright and jewel-like!
Mr Sunshine, saying hello
'You're going the wrong way!!' (hindsight is always ever-so unhelpful)
Hills and dales for miles
Yes, that is the boy, and yes, he is indeed 'running up that hill' (ok, fine, he's running down it)
Evening sunshine
My effort at being artistic!
