Tourists in our own county

25 Sep

We often travel miles out and about taking photographs, but then sometimes also decide to become tourists at home due to the fact that we live in a very picturesque part of our country…….

The Shropshire Hills is an area of outstanding natural beauty and I hope the following pics will reflect and justify that title!…………:)

From the top of the “Burway” looking back east towards the west midlands, that far horizon must be 30 miles away!…..

Then looking West towards Wales

A day out with Chrissy will often involve visiting a pub somewhere, and this day was no different, although the pub, the “Horsehshoes” at Ratlinghope (pronounced “Ratchup” if you’re local) has been there for a while now as it’s a genuine 16th Century ale procurement establishment!…. and if the garden looks like this on a September day that can’t be bad!…….:)

Chrissy resting those weary feet as we did have to walk all the way from the car park!………..;)

Mmmmmm!….. refreshing indeed!…… might be able to make it back to the car park after that!……LOL

Further over the hill is the Midland Gliding Club and it’s always worth stopping to watch the antics of the local pilots…..

The passenger here seems intent on taking his own snaps, or maybe a video of the landing!…………:)

All in all a very pleasant day out in Shropshire, another memory to maintain during these dismal rainy days that we are experiencing once more!…..

Have a great week!………………;)

    Great photos and it really does look like a beautiful place!

    As a side note, I was wondering what camera you use? I’ve been wanting to purchase a new camera, and any thoughts/suggestions are very welcome!

    So gorgeous. I kept thinking of The Shropshire Slasher, a bad guy out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Sorry.
