Ralf’s had an injured paw for a few weeks so our trips out have been a bit restricted. He’s recovering now, giving us the opportunity to drive to Kirkham Priory, on the other side of Malton.
Despite the forecast we had sunshine and a warm day – the Priory is part of English Heritage so we could use our cards for free entry and we even took a picnic for once.
After a walk around the ruins, we took Ralf for an off lead walk beside the River Derwent and into Kirkham Woods – the paths were a bit muddy underfoot but he was wearing a small boot that Alison had bought online, to protect his wound.
We headed back to the Priory for our picnic before taking the slow route home through Thixendale – more on that in another Blog later in the summer.
