Its Chatsworth Show time again. Luckily we didn’t have to go. Not a dog thing really although there is always lots to see, smell and friends to make. But no running around. Mistress of course, like last year, wanted to see the Red Arrows. Last year was great as we walked over from Bakewell and sat overlooking Chatsworth. This year it was decided that we would watch from the back fields of our cottages (click here). As we are only a few miles from Chatsworth, you can see the hunting tower from our back field. There was, therefore, a clear view of the entire display, including them flying right over us. Smudge and I weren’t too pleased about that, so we tried chasing them off which got mistress a bit upset with us. Anyhow mistress enjoyed the display.
Sunday was a bit of a cock-up. We were supposed to go and have a look around Leawood Pumping station on the Cromford Canal as they were having an open day with the engine working etc. Didn’t sound very interesting to me, but master seemed keen. Off we went, only to find that mistress had got the dates wrong and it was closed – great! So instead it was decided we would have a walk along the Cromford canal to the Cromford Wharf tea room where mistress could have her afternoon tea. Even on our leads we had a nice walk along the old tow path and a laze in the sun while mistress had her afternoon tea.
