Steve's 41st Birthday

For Steve's 41st birthday we took a journey on the Folk Train. This is a regular train from Manchester to Hathersage in the Peak District but with the added bonus of musicians playing in one of the carriages. On our trip I was treated to a chorus of Happy Birthday sung by the entire carriage. (Thanks Sophie!) The stopover in Hathersage included a visit to a local pub where the musicians played on and the punters availed themselves of lunch and a beverage. It was a great way to spend a summer afternoon. You can read more about the Folk Trains here.

On our return to Manchester we took a trip to Urbis before retiring to our abode. 

On Sunday we took a trip to Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Lancashire. You can read more about Martin Mere here.
