My wife and I had arranged a holiday “five day break” in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for this week some six weeks ago and really looking forward to it, and the photography, which was a big part of the trip. A week before the departure date I fell ill with the dreaded Flu but fortunately got rid of the worst of it in time to go on the morning of 9/10/13 and at 10 am we were off on what was to be a lovely day. 2 Hour,ish drive got us close enough to our final destination “High Bentham” so we stopped for some lunch, after which we set about photographing the West side of Whernside and Ingleborough under an ongoing period of showery rain.
At around 4-00pm we decided to check into our hotel which was to be home for the next 3 night and time to photograph the North West Dales of Yorkshire and the other side of the boarder Trough of Bowland in Lancashire “Bliss” in some of the most picturesque scenery in Gods own land and in fact the country.
We showered, had a nice meal, a couple of drinks and bed ready for an early start 10-30 pm and then it happened, my wife was violently ill with stomach cramps and vomiting, and stayed in bed until lunch time next day with medication from the pharmacy. We managed to get out at 1-30 ish but she was not good and at 4-00 pm She had to see a doctor who advised “Home to bed for three days” So we packed up and left for home.
My wife is safely tucked up in bed feeling slightly better.
We will be back late Oct/Nov or maybe Spring, we just left the most beautiful light and weather for the time of year albeit a little cold, nothing a good coat can’t cope with.
