Walk Detail: This was not so much of a walk as a picnic outing with a bit of ambling about. Joining us on the walk was George the Pig who I'd bought for Rhiannon just the day before.
We were trying to encourage Rhiannon to walk a bit more rather than be carried all the time. She did quite well though she fell over a few times which put her off a bit. A picnic and some pictures on the trig sorted that out though.
Penistone Hill is probably not the most inspiring focal point for a major walk but it was still a most pleasant place to spend some time with my girls and I'm sure we will be back for future picnics.
