Sorting through old photos (with a bedroom now positively littered with old albums), I found an early 'digital' directory named '2000 onwards unfiled'.
The top picture looks as if it was taken in evening light, maybe in the Peak District, at a time when Ian C and Linda C were accompanying us regularly on evening walks. Andrew was also there, and has been a stalwart of such outings right up to the present day (subject to our being allowed out).
The pictures would appear to have been taken with our Olympus digital camera - perhaps just after it was purchased. From memory, that would place them around August 2002 - ish.
In the same small folder were a few pictures taken by Sue at work in her MI department. Maybe that will help her to date the pictures? Maybe at some point I'll come across a 2002 diary that might help? Maybe it was some time completely different? Does it really matter?...
The second picture gave the clue - one of the books is dated 2003. That enabled the top photo to be identified as being near Hayfield on 15 July 2003 - a separate entry will follow.
