Remembrance Day and being shot at.......

After yesterday the wind had really picked up and it was pouring with rain, so we lit the fire and went back to bed. We surfaced about 9.00am when we heard a loud bang and Derwent6 was covered in gunshot. It sounded like a firework going off on the roof. Opposite us they were hunting for Pheasant and Grouse and making a hell of a racket. The dogs were running everywhere picking up the kills. We then went on the hunt for wood, and combined that with a walk to Tixall village. We walked up to the Obelisk and then saw the lovely little church before heading back to Derwent6 just in time before it poured hard again.

The winds had picked up again and we were being rocked about a bit, but it was good fun, and we listened to the radio which was sharing people's thoughts on Armistices day, which was very moving. We also had a bit of a tidy up today and made a effort to get rid of the things we hadn't used for three or more months. If you don't use it you don't need it... that's our policy!!!
