out and about

On Saturday we went to Keswick and looked around the pencil museum. I bought some crayon pencils and a book about drawing. ( I can't draw). We went on a very nice walk down to the lake Derwentwater,

saw evidence of autumn approaching

and went on a boat

On Monday we went to Preston to the Harris Museum
Then we went on to Lythham St Anne's

The weather was not great but we paddled in the sea

I ended up with numb fingers but this was put right by fish and chips in a local cafe.

On Tuesday we took a trip to Kirkby Stephen
From the station a mile and a half from the town we took a long walk through fields woods and by the river via Nateby and Ladthwaite Farm Hartley. Here Biddle and Gardener Bunny discovered an interesting box.

Inside there was a notebook where you could write comments about your impression of the scenery, you could leave a donation for the mountain rescue service and take a postcard. It looked a lovely place for a holiday and allow dogs too. Biddle wondered if he would be allowed to stay. (He now has sore paws from all the walking and is having a couple of days rest at home). Our walk finished in the town and after a well earned coffee and piece of carrot cake we walked the 1.5 miles back to the station

During this holiday period nothing has been created fabric-wise.

Love your pics Wendy. I can't draw or paint either, but I always have them hanging around. For "just in case" I get the urge to do so. :-)
Great photo's, I have plasters for paws. :-)

Wonderful pictures. I can't draw either but wish I could. A walk along the country side sounds like fun.
