Wasdale


We left behind our sun scorched Cotswold escarpment for the temperate green pastures of northern England. 

Walking through the beautiful dales and valleys presented us with a continual feast for the eye and gave us enormous pleasure.  We loved watching the weather roll across the tops of the high fells turning their colours from palest blue to deeper more dramatic shades within moments - the wide variety of wildflowers, ferns, foliage, and rocks adding their colours to the mix.

 Visited some historic places that particularly interested us, and ate delicious locally sourced food at our hotel. We met some interesting people along the way - especially in the hotel.                                        Once the many jobs that occur following travels away from home have been accomplished, I will sort through the photos and return.

  5. It's a beautiful place the Lake District with so many fantastic rural paths, villages,and towns. It packs a huge amount and so many different scenic landscapes around each new corner into a relatively small area of England. An amazing district.

  8. Oh dear Rosemary, Bob and I are envious and recall the one time we visited there and loved it all so much. The food sounded so good - nothing better than local, always fresh and healthy. Your beautiful photos and description of the scenery really bring back memories - look forward to seeing more photos once you have relaxed and caught up at home!
    Sending hugs to you both - still sad we couldn't get together this last visit - but there's alway another time hopefully.

  10. So enjoyed your blog today. We visited The English Lake District quite a few years ago and fell in love with it. Brought back many wonderful memories. Breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you for sharing. From the base of the mini-mountain in Maine.
