    Peak District's Finest, Sun 17th June

    I must pride myself today on finding NO COW POO, let's hope it lasts hey! We met at Matlock where the blinking toilets were shut, so it was a quick scoot to the shopping outlet. In future we will meet at Sainsbury's where there is petrol and a pee. Andy and Sue, Martyn and Sue with Paul and Pat in the VX. At Matlock Paul let me have a little drive around the car park in his VX, for which I feel very honoured, it is harder than a Westfield to get in and out of and you see nothing out of the rear view mirror, it felt a positive drive, it was lovely . It certainly looks the biz too. We sliced a route through the centre of the Peak District, meeting the Spire Classic Car Run coming in the opposite direction, so lots of waving there then. Up the very fine Winnats Pass, just look at that empty tarmac begging for my 4 new tyres, of which I am exceptionally pleased with, exceptionally. Then it was a slow run down Mam Nick to take in the scenery Arriving at the Rambler Inn at 11.55am, just before it opened, meaning an empty car park and pub, simples. A table for 8 soon became a table for 10 when Chris and Mo arrived. The feasting began The view of the Great Mam Tor Ridge from the car park. Bonnets Off - the view of the great 2 litre Zetec in Andy's car, complete with a gold rocker cover. We could have another caption competition with this photo! Paul went next with his turbo 2 l which he has just changed the cam belt and water pump on, it's service day tomorrow, he keeps a nice car there. Andy and Sue ready for the off We set off for more of those views over Mam Nick, those hills, those twisty roads, all lacking cow poo. We were now a 5 car convoy, with Chris and Mo. We arrived at the cake stop and parked in our designated area To the grand finale, the cake, but someone couldn't wait, so we had an empty plate on the table didn't we Paul? All the ingredients for a great day out - driving, bonnets off, eating, scenery and great company, thank you to everyone for making it happen. It's Shelsley Walsh next weekend so we hope to see you all back in the Peak District the weekend after.

    Hi Andy and Sue, Of course you are very welcome and the good news is that I have not invited Daisy. Sorry to hear about Gail, wish her a speedy recovery. See you all soon, Julie

    ooh, nearly, Paul, enjoy your grandchildren and we will catch you next time. I am very pleased Ali and Gail are coming too because I have just been out arranging our cake for tomorrow afternoon and we have a special 'Westfield Parking Area' that the lady is sorting for us, it would look a bit daft with only 2 cars in it.

    Peak District's Finest, Sun 17th June

    Meet at Artist Corner Car Park, Matlock, DE4 3PS at 10.30am for a drive north through some of the Peak District's finest scenery to arrive at The Rambler Inn, Edale just in time for lunch, with views over the Mam Tor ridge. For anyone wanting more, we will wiggle a route back down and finish with tea and cake. It is Father's Day so I am not expecting anyone to be able to join us, but just in case you can I am posting it up, ever the optimist.

    Happy Cake Day Julie

    Thank you for all the birthday greetings and yes, there was cake involved in the day. We went yomping through the Peak District on Bleaklow, which included a drive up and down the Snake Pass, followed by a meal in the Ladybower Inn with Bakewell Tart for afters. We had planned to eat at the Snake Inn but the barrier is across the car park and it is all shut up with a For Sale sign on it!

    Railway Run in the Peak District, Saturday 9th June

    We briefly met at Matlock where Andrew did the 'panorama dance' that we are eternally grateful to Trevor for teaching it to us. He was running up an appetite for later. Disaster struck, the toilets were shut, 'not to worry, the mens are open' said Paul. Oh great I thought, I will use the mens when they have finished, huff, Paul went off to the nearest bush didn't he! We took the short journey to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, a largely unknown heritage line. Andrew, Matt, Paul and Margaret, and Ali and Gail. Matts yellow stripe contrasted great with the yellow cars in my rear view mirror. After a snack, a brew and a look at the steam engine, which is better viewed arriving than leaving, we went for our drive through the Peak District. We wiggled all the way up, down and round to come back to a point about 10 miles down the road at The Peak Rail. The first fix was Paul's indicator followed by Gails idle speed. The steam train arrived on time We had lunch, where Glen and Ali got naughty, some derogatory comment about women, followed by looks over to Gail and I, lots of oooo's, then ruddy Ali finished his sentence with 'and there were 5 of them strapped together' and laughed. Goodness only knows what they were talking about, the male of the kind will probably get an answer to that one Then Andrew treated us all to cake, what a wonderful guy, thank you very much Andrew. Needless to say nobody refused. We all cooked nicely in the hot sun until it was time for everyone to make their 1.5 - 2 hours journey home. You all are so brilliant for travelling the distance to make today happen and I really cannot thank you enough, you are all great. Actually you all probably got home before us, because it was such lovely weather we went to check out a pub with a view, up on the tops. It was very nice and we must all go there, perhaps next time, we will see.

    Railway Run in the Peak District, Saturday 9th June

    Righty ho @AndrewBClarke if young Matt says the weather is ok then I will set my alarm and warm my new tyres up, all 4 of them!! The next Peak District meeting will be on a Sunday, I only went for Saturday so that I could move it on a day if the weather was bad, if I had known hey. For tomorrow, the route has been set, about 5 minutes on an A road, the rest of it is well off the tourist route. Looking forward to it ......listening to the V8 start that is.

    Railway Run in the Peak District, Saturday 9th June

    Meet at Artist Corner Car Park, Matlock, DE4 3PS at 10.30am. After a quick gathering we will travel 10 minutes down the road to get a bacon butty or similar and watch the 11.15am steam train depart the station. Then we will take a very indirect route, along some nice roads to Peak Rail at Darley Dale to watch the 13.33 steam train arrive, and I think there might be lunch and/or cake involved at this time. Listen very carefully, come closer, if it rains like last week.....DON'T TURN UP.......and let me know so I can stay in bed too. Presuming the weather is nice, who is joining us?
