All New Years' Eve parties should involve friends and family. So we started at a family party which meant that we were amongst friends as well as family. And then - as midnight approached - we moved on to the Rock Tavern to see the New Year in with our friends there (and they also included a good number of family members as well). The first picture shows a curious game in progress, the rules of which I am still unsure about.
The second picture was taken this morning as I came back from collecting Xan from some all-night party or another. The mist was still clinging to the sides of the valley. But the Calder Valley line - at the cutting above Salterhebble Hill - cuts through all that mellowness.
