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.

Hi would you mind if Sue and myself join you tomorrow? I read and viewed your previous spins around the peak district with envy,but either I've been working or the weather has been bad (Sorry I'm a fine weather driver).

P.S have they caught that road fouling Daisy the cow?:d

Hi all, really sorry but now going to have to give tomorrow a miss. Gail's done her back in decorating today. Even a drive to the pub for a pint tonight was painful for her. :( Not even got any food in for tomorrow :cry:

Hi Andy, it will be good to see you tomorrow but I'm afraid Julie always finds the roads that the cows have left deposits on so be prepared!

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

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.
