Magical Mystery Tour

Another spontaneous “Let’s just go for a drive and see where we end up!” mission tonight, after I got in from work. This time we headed off in a vaguely easterly direction, over the heavily guarded and fortified border into deepest darkest Yorkshire.

As with last time we played this game, we just drove in the general direction of anywhere that looked remote and then found somewhere to park up when night fell. This time we parked up beside a reservoir not far from a village called Stanbury.

After dinner, and a few nightcaps, we went to beddy-byes…

..and awoke in the morning to a find that it had snowed during the night and we were in a winter wonderland

Yay! –snow!
Yay! –snow!

We wandered about in the snow for a bit, taking photos and then had brekkie and set of for home. I was a bit worried about Herman slipping and a-sliding all over the show on the way back, but it turned out the snowfall was quite localised and, after we’d gingerly driven on about five or ten miles, or so, it was all gone.
