Muddy but colourful Autumn walk up Scolty

Well it finally stopped raining and I persuaded Gail to take me for a walk up Scolty Hill this weekend. We both needed a dose of fresh air and a good leg stretch. I reminded her to take the camera too.

It goes against my nature, but for once I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Oh and I must thank all of you for supporting me in my campaign to join Gail on her trip to Nottingham to see HGD. I am delighted to report it was successful, and both Gail and I will be heading south on the train on Wednesday. The other good news is that HGY has a new, much faster computer, so I may even be able to keep in touch, if Gail has any time to help me.


  1. What a wonderful walk! I would love to romp there.

  2. Ah I see you saw some mountains too mate; I daresay Gail could name yours..... Love to HGD & HGY. Deccy x

  3. If you didn't see yesterdays post re missing furry friend can you pop by and see if you can help. Anything we can do will be greatly appreciated. Have a happy Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Bertie...what a great walk...or run. Just beautiful and we guess it's FULL of interesting scents. We just hope Gail didn't dump you in a cold stream to clean off your feet.

    We're so happy you can go to Nottingham.

  8. Bertie - Congratulations on your forthcoming trip. There are certain times when the presence of a caring family fellow is needed.

  9. What a fun walk. Was there a bath at the end? Glad to hear you will be helping with HGD's recovery.

  12. hey Bertie,

    Yay! I am so furry excited you will be joining Gail to see your HGD! I do hope you can communicate while there on their new and fast computer. I want to know how your HGD is doing, and how excited he and your HGM are to have your feisty, fun personality around. :->

    The pictures are gorgeous! You always find the best, most pretty places to take your walks. What is the tower? You pose so nicely, Bertie. :->

    The photo of the trees in their Fall color finest is wonderful.


  13. I am sooooooo very much glad that YOU will be going to see HGD. I KNOW it will make him feel grrrrrreat to see you.


  14. Bertie you sure do live in a gorgeous place

  15. That looks like a great long as you didn't have to get a .... bath!

  16. You get to go on the most amazing walks, Bertie -- such beautiful countryside! I'm glad your human is so willing to take you climbing on those hills, too; not all humans like to walk up and downhill as much as yours does. :)

    And speaking of humans, I know HGY and HGD will be happy to see you in Nottingham. You be careful around HGD, okay? You're a very smart boy; I know you won't get underfoot or anything naughty like that!

  17. Bertie, I am so happy you will be joining Gail. You have the most amazing places to visit with such beautiful scenery. Thank you for showing me all the beauty around you.

  20. So glad the rain let up and y'all got out and about! Your photos spoke very well for you Bertie :) I'm particularly fond of the one with you among all the moss covered boulders :)

    Waggin at ya,

  21. I am enthralled by the colours of your countryside. Gail, you certainly chose Bertie's colouring for your excursions - he definitely adds value to your pictures and beautiful posts.
    I continue to keep your dad in my thoughts and prayers. I know it can't be easy - although you always keep the sun shining on your blog...thank you!
