Today has been mostly dull and fairly wet. The summits of Dead Man's Hill and Little Whernside have been obliterated by the low cloud and droplets hung on the Geraniums. Such a contrast with yesterday when the sky was clear and the sun shone. We had a trip through to Skipton in the sunshine, very pleasant and there were Harebells all the way along Braidley Bents, We could hardly get through Kettlewell for visitors as it was the annual Scarecrow Festival, and of course we had forgotten about it. The traffic between Kettlewell and Skipton was something else! We came home later than usual so that most of the visitors had had time to leave and we met fewer than we would have done earlier.
