It's a while since we went up Nicky Nook. This destination is the wrong side of town for most of us. However, traffic is light these days, so with no hold ups it took just an hour to reach this lovely area. We were blessed with fine weather and superb visibility on this visit, for a walk that was a minor extension of one that we did in the evening on 24 May 2005 and on other occasions.
The 'full house' (there's a maximum of groups of six people at present) included regular Friday morning walkers - Sue, Graeme, Paul and me - and we were delighted to welcome Tony, who we hadn't seen for several years, and John (aka 'BC'), who we met for the first time today. John is a blogger in the name of 'Bowland Climber', and occasionally comments on these pages - comments that led to his being invited to join us today on what is his 'home patch'. It was a pleasure to meet you, John.
Somewhat miraculously, everyone had found the picnic site and we were ready to roll before the designated time of 10 am. We strolled past a bus stop that on a rainy day could challenge the concept of social distancing.

What a lovely way to spend a morning.
