Having done the weekly dash around Sainsburys it was just too nice to stay at home so I headed out for a late afternoon stroll around Stanton Moor. Too much haze for any long-distance views and the sun was starting to disappear as I headed back to the car but there is always plenty to see on Stanton Moor.
