I have decided to keep a Journal of how the natural world changes around where I live. Of the things I see that interest me. I may not always know the names of the trees and plants, birds, animals and insects that I will photograph but I will have fun doing it and perhaps I will learn something new about my surroundings.

Just ‘out of my back gate’ is a lane which continues on the other side of the main road. So this is the title of my Journal I know that there will be times when I am not at home and I will still want to include the things I see but it will still be ‘out of my back gate’

A Week in Skipton, Yorkshire

A week spent up in Skipton Yorkshire with my daughter and her family, most of my photo are of my grandson, Daniel, who is now 20 months old, but I did take some of the countryside around the area. Skipton has a wonderful network of canals and a river so lots to take there and the beginning of the moor is within easy walking distance that even Daniel walked quite a lot of it.
see my other blog Mary's Musings for photo of his walking that day.

  3. Beautiful photos Mary. I love the water ways ones. I am glad you had a lovely time with your daughter and family.
