Today the weather dawned bright, clear and cold. Very cold. We waited until just after lunch then set off for a local-ish country park, Rabbit Ings. This is the site of a former colliery which has been landscaped and turned into a country park. The blot on the horizon nearby is the Monckton coking plant, although I have heard rumours that this may be closing soon. Certainly there was no smoke coming out of the chimneys today, so the area didn't smell too bad for once. Normally it stinks when you pass the place!
We parked up and set off along some very icy paths to find a couple of geocaches, which we didn't have any trouble finding. I've not been on this side of the park before, and it was very peaceful and pleasant despite the cold.

|Is it in here, Mum?|
I can see us coming back with the bikes at some point though as I'm sure HMS would enjoy a ride around here. I know I would!
Until next time. x
