Andrew’s Birthday Weekend

2005/Peak District This year’s excursion for Andrew’s 31st birthday was to the Peak District, about 2 hours drive north of London. We hired a car and headed there on Saturday. We spent our first half of the day exploring typical English tourist towns. Someone said to us that Matlock, one of the main towns, was like the English seaside without the sea and they were right — it had all the amusements, ice cream stands and game arcades, just no beach!

That night we went to a great hotel called The Bear in Alderwasley. We had some trouble finding it (the town is so small it only has a phone box and a church!) but once we got there we enjoyed some wonderful food and wine. If you’re in the area let us know and we’ll give you directions.

On Sunday we tried caving, which was completely new for both of us. We were guided down two former lead mines and learned a bit about abseiling and squeezing through crevices so tiny you wouldn’t have thought possible. It was a lot of fun and we came back very sore and bruised from all the hard work!

    I simply needed to appreciate you once more. I’m not certain the things I would have implemented in the absence of the entire ideas documented by you directly on such a theme. Entirely was an absolute distressing matter for me personally, but observing the very specialized way you processed it took me to leap with happiness. I am happier for this support and thus believe you realize what an amazing job you’re doing instructing some other people by way of a web site. Most likely you haven’t encountered all of us.

    I as well as my friends were reviewing the great information and facts located on the website and then unexpectedly got a horrible feeling I never expressed respect to you for those tips. These boys came as a result very interested to learn them and have in effect definitely been tapping into them. Thanks for being quite helpful as well as for picking out varieties of cool themes most people are really desirous to be informed on. Our own sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to sooner.

    Old Mr Casbury of Acrington told me this day of young Sir Everard Charlett, at that time a student of University College. I wanted to tell a little story. Thanks for this beautiful site. I will always get inspiration from here..
