“Daddy, Why Is the Sun Shining in Manchester?”

We overheard this perfectly reasonable question as our flight landed in the UK on June 7th, the first of many unusually dry geocaching days for us in West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and Northumberland in England and Berwickshire in Scotland.

It’s been raining here — just not so much on us.Β  We packed for cold, rainy weather but so far we’ve been warm and dry for nearly all of our time outdoors, making hiking and geocaching even more fun than we expected. Here are some scenes from our outings so far (links to more details are in the picture captions).

    • Thanks very much! It really has been a great trip so far — we’ve still got a few days left. There’ll be more to come for each day represented in this post and perhaps other days as well.

  1. What luck to have sunshine on your trip. The photos are breathtaking. I’m currently on vacation with my family and its been raining several times a day with the sun still shinning. Still lots of fun though. Thank you for stopping by my blog. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the nice words about my photos. We really were _extremely_ fortunate weather-wise. We mostly moved back and forth between West Yorkshire and Northumberland, and we were only seriously rained on during two days: for about an hour on 12 June and the morning of the day we flew back home, 23 June. Thanks for taking a look and best of luck with your blog!
