“Everybody likes driving through scenic, winding roads. It’s hard to find people who like sitting in traffic in cities.” – Karl Lagnemma
Over the years, I’ve shared many of my scenic photographs on my blog. Today it’s another family affair, I not only repeat a couple of my own but also photographs kindly shared by my family on some of their recent walks around the neighbourhood during the Covid-19 Lockdown.

Daughter Victoria and son-in-law Simon both shared photographs of the black lambs that are grazing in one of the fields higher up the lane.
Keen to avoid the local well known beauty spots, a few weeks ago Victoria and family took a walk down Old Pool Bank.
Their walk led them into the woodland where they used to live on Avenue Des Hirondelles. Walking along the track they passed their old home. Eventually, they exited the track and crossed over the busy Pool Bank New Road and following another track they made their uphill journey home.
Last month, they walked further down the hillside to Pool-in-Wharfedale.
In the valley, they made their way along the quiet non-tourist area of the banks of the River Wharfe. Grandson Max tried his hand at foraging and brought back garlic roots which he baked in the oven to make garlic potatoes and a little pot of garlic mayo.
Other photographs were provided by daughters Louisa (Scarlett and Lily-Jane) and Sophie with Evie when they walked separately on Otley Chevin. Sophie and Evie took chalks with them and left rainbows supporting the NHS on some of the boulders.
The grass on my farm has grown incredibly long, I’d assumed that Richard, who rents the land, had decided to grow hay this year, but a couple of days ago he told me I was wrong, he’d been resting the land and I’d have cattle by the weekend.
The first group of cattle arrived yesterday on a swelteringly hot afternoon.
I heard the deep bellowing of the cattle before I saw them running down the field kicking up their heels and announcing their arrival.
