For my birthday, my wife and I have returned to my birth town of Birch Vale in the UK. Birch Vale is in the Peak District of Derbyshire, between New Mills and Hayfield. The population of Birch Vale is about 2000.
We are staying at the Waltzing Weisel, a BnB in the center of Birch Vale.
It’s 6 am, my wife and I are both enjoying a fine cup of English tea. Later today I hope to ascend Shining Tor with Mike 2E0YYY for my first UK SOTA activation.
