Hi to you all, out on saturday in the lovely area around Ladybower, a nice warm day and an area I like very much, also noticeable was the low water level.

Strange rock formations
The next photo is a bird hide but my husband says it reminds him (as a space fan) of the Apollo 11 crew when they returned to earth, I think they could be the three wise monkeys :lol:

The last photo is the memorial to the 617 Dambusters Squadron who practised here before the legendary mission to the German dams, flowers from recent VE Day celebrations.

I suppose after some of your recent trips up the lakes Sue, you might consider this a stroll but 19k is still a
fair old trek.Don`t recognise the rock formations and miss your gps route to locate them,but thanks for yet
another report on the gangs escapades.Always look forward to see what you`ve been upto.

The rock formations are actually a land slip, its called Alport Castles. I was born within a stones throw (literally) of Ladybower and now live within 3 miles of it, its still the best place in the world to me.

Thanks Midgebite, the post was put on quickly hence the double photo and no map, it is a massive landslide unless its a pile of those stones you've been throwing from your house :lol: :lol: :lol:
