Monday 9 June Bakewell Market and BBQ

Another hot day forecast so with one B&B departing and none coming in we decided to have a BBQ with the couple we are friendly with who are in one of the cottages. This is the last day for the foreseeable future that we have nobody in for B&B and the first Monday for a long time that I have no cottages in or out so I decided to go to the market in the afternoon. One cleaner up in the morning to do both rooms. After lunch went down to Bakewell and Chris came too. Had a look around the market and got a few bits for the BBQ. Made a detour on the way back to Monyash to buy an ice cream from The Smithy Cafe in Monyash. They are very nice. Perhaps I should also mention at this point that in a recent edition of the Sunday Times it had 50 things you should do this summer. One was to visit Blaze Farm at Wildboarclough on the edge of the Peak District. (www.blazefarm.com) They make ice cream (Hilly Billy ice cream) which is really scrumptious. Had an early evening BBQ to take advantage of the warmth and light. A very enjoyable evening.
