In my last post I asked you to keep your fingers crossed for good weather for us on our trip into the Dales, but I guess you were all busy or something because, well, last Sunday was the wettest day in the history of wet English days. This photo just about sums it up.
But we were not deterred! We had a brilliant day. We drove up through the spectacular Wensleysdale countryside and every now and then the mist and clouds lifted enough so we could even see a bit of it.
And we visited the Wensleydale cheese factory, where we learned about how the cheese is made (word to the wise, don’t ask. You’ll enjoy your cheese much more if you haven’t seen it as rancid milk swimming round in huge vats).
Unfortunately it was just too wet for the walk across the fields that I had planned, so we drove back home and I took this video for you. You have to agree, it’s beautiful even on a cold, wet day.
