I was torn between a garden party or a carriage ride. You can see that I like outdoor. But England's weather is so unpredictable...

(I put this comment at the bottom of the voting screen. I don't know whether it will show up so I am reposting it here. Hope you don't mind.)

I've been to the top of Box Hill a number of times and I've walked on the Cob at Lyme in stormy weather.In the background of The Cobb picture you can see, The Undercliffe. That is eight miles of forest track. It has it's own micro climate and is like a mini rainforest. I can recommend all three walks.

I fancy a carriage outing to a point of interest ( servants to do all the heavy lifting, set up and cleanup ) I was born to be waited on and spoiled...unfortunately, it only happens in my dreams or if I'm sick !

I would prefer a small dance above all things! Contra dancing is super fun.
