Following on from our jolly to Malham Tarn FSC last week, we returned this weekend to return the borrowed kit, and stayed overnight in the town.
On Friday we took advantage of the nice weather and headed out for a walk, despite only setting off at 4:30pm! We’re normally heading home at that time, but had a late start as Daddy had to sleep post night shift. Pip did a fair bit of walking which is still great to see after being so poorly. We also carried Pip and Bee in our Connecta baby/toddler carriers which are fab 🙂
We decided to head to Janet’s Foss, a lovely little waterfall less than 2 miles from the centre of Malham. On the way there we came across the fallen trees with all the coins in for the Faeries 🙂
So we left out own… Precariously wedged into an existing hole. I don’t hold out much hope of it being there next time we visit! Or even now, to be honest 😂
Janet’s Foss is even prettier than I remember it. Which is possibly because the last time I was there could have been on a rainy hike with my late father! It was nice to remember family visits then as it would have been his birthday the day before 🙂
Once we made it, a nice couple who were visiting from down south were kind enough to take a picture for us, so here is a very rare occurance: all 4 of us looking at the camera and not a selfie!
Pip: “I need a poo!”
So there he went, a poo on a loo with a view. How life has changed. *sigh* Thank goodness for potettes though! I shan’t tell you what that is dangling from the rucksack on our way up to Gordale Scar.
The photos of Gordale Scar really don’t do it justice. It’s much more impressive and we had fun with echoes, echoes, echoes, echoes.
We then took the shortcut back to the hostel where we chose our beds before going down for tea.
We were extremely impressed with everything about Malham YHA. The accommodation and facilities were bang on and above all the staff were fantastic and friendly and could not have been more accommodating of Pip’s coeliac requirements.
In anticipation of the four of us sharing a room, we treated ourselves to a bottle of wine and made sure the kids were super tired by having an hour in he lounge.
Pip and Bee had a great time playing and we enjoyed the calm before the storm! Here’s a pic of the small ones enjoying a bit of top bunk peek-a-boo-img before bed 🙂
Bee woke a couple of times in the night, but otherwise we slept well. These two were still worn out on Sat morning though! So we had another play/chill out in the lounge after breakfast while we decided what to do with our morning.
We then headed out to buy new wayerproofs for Pip. I heard we would need them for part two of our adventure, which I will blog about separately!
Here’s a clue…
