Trip to Buxton

Had a nice lazy morning today. Got up about 10, went on the internet for a little while, and then we decided to take a drive up to Buxton. Not for any particular reason, but just to have a walk around. Buxton is in Derbyshire near Manchester, and we used to live there for a while when I worked for a company in Bollington.

When we got to Buxton we went for lunch at the Weatherspoons pub, and then walked around the town center. That's when we saw this Cow statue outside a shop. Naturally I had to get a photo.

After walking around town we went to the gardens in Buxton and sat down for a bit. We was in no rush to come home so just chilled out there for a bit. That's when I started chasing ducks around the lake, as I can't stay sitting still for too long.

He was totally Quackers.
After chilling out in the gardens we made our way back to the car via the opera house. There is a pub next to the opera house called the Club House. This used to be our local pub when we lived in Buxton. Although I wouldn't have food in there again as it was horrible the last time we went :-)
