|The People's Monarch|

On the 26th of May 2012 I blogged on Theatrical Eastbourne about The People's Monarch which was a giant photographic installation created by Helen Marshall to celebrate the Jubilee. It had opened at Eastbourne's Towner Gallery the day before and I got there early in the day to be one of the first visitors to see it!
One year later and I had just posted a letter booking us into

We were well into our UK summer tour by May 2015 and had pitched up in the gorgeous scenery of the Peak District. My blog post for the 25th of the month recounts our nine mile walk from Lose Hill to Mam Tor, one of the iconic Peak District routes. We shared our day with lots of other walkers which gave an unusual community feel to it - long distance walks usually result in us seeming to have the world to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and we treated ourselves to ice cream in Castleton at the end. Both Dave and I loved the Peak District and I definitely think we will return at some point for more superb walks.
That's all for this month's reminiscing. If you want to share your own #ThrowbackThursday posts, feel welcome to drop a link in the Comments. Next month I'll be remembering the 30th of Junes.
