Yesterday ended up with tastings of the wonderful Thornbridge brews at the Packhorse Inn at Little Longstone . . .

But it started with the much-looked-forward-to arrival of our friend Pete from Boston USA, an 'award winning' coffee at Bragazzi's then off into the sweltering heat of the day and the Peak District.
and CONGRATS to Bragazzi's for this award - well deserved.

then onward to the old lime kilns - dank and spooky

 and discovery of the beautifully scented common spotted orchid
but then the decidedly undelightful discovery that the Angler's Rest had just closed and we were hot and thirsty!!
 and that's how we ended up at the Packhorse Inn - full circle story - wonderful day!!
