Riding past the old oak tree
Riding past the old oak tree
Riders on the Trans Pennine Trail are passing the old oak tree at Foxholes. Huddling under the tree is a chap who wasn't too keen to have his photograph taken. "What are taking photographs for?" he called out - "I take a photograph of this oak tree every year" - "But why are taking a photograph of me?" - "Because you happen to be there" - "Fair enough then." I didn't ask what he was doing. He seemed to be hacking bits off the bottom of the tree possibly for use as firewood but I may be wrong about that.
