Reflections on Christmas Eve

We drove up to Sheffield yesterday to spend stay with Danuta and Ken. The roads were all clear of snow and we had one of our fastest trips, five hours with three stops and no queues due to accidents or road works. After lunch we decided to view Derbyshire in the snow.
We started off in the car park at the Grouse Inn which used to be a favourite venue in the late 70s. We spent many lunchtimes there enjoying their famous beef sandwiches, and many evenings in front of the dart board. George and I hogged the board one evening, knocking out all comers, a unique occasion I have to admit, but we dined out on the experience thereafter.
Then we had a walk along the River Derwent below Froggat both sides of the bridge where the reflections were wonderful.
 We stopped again at the Grouse for sunset shots, and finally on the Bakewell road for a second sunset.
