Bronte Falls

Bronte Falls

The week of the last three thing game was stressful. In addition to the three thing game itself I was busy collating marks, marking final year projects and emptying my office ready for a carpet and some new furniture. This all had to be done by the end of the week because the following week I was going on holiday, to a dog friendly place near Haworth in West Yorkshire.

We picked the place because it was dog friendly, so pugs Molly and George came with us, and the loved having all that space to run about it. You could open the door to our accommodation and a few feet away there was a gate to open moorland where they were free to run around as much as they liked. We walked across the moors to Haworth, and took the steam train to Keighley and back (don’t tell Mike!), we walked to the Bronte falls and generally just relaxed.

We were really lucky with the weather too. It was gorgeous. In fact more than once Molly seemed to be struggling in the heat (Her pug nose give her breathing problems sometimes) and she had to be carried. It was really nice to just not do anything for a short while, and Molly and George loved not have to be kept on a lead as much as they do at home.

The week ended a little too quickly and then it was back to work, but I think the extra pressure before going away almost enhanced the relaxation after, or at least it seemed to. I could have definitely stayed a day or two longer though.
