The Lake District once again…this time to Borrowdale and the lovely Derwentwater. On our way there we stopped off at Levens Hall for a stroll around the gardens. Topiary gone mad.
Then Linthwaite – overlooking Windermere – and a greeting from Mr Toad.
There were sheep everywhere, of course. We spotted these two – ewe and lamb – making a break for it in Borrowdale.
Also an abundance of signs featuring red squirrels – a protected species.
After a boat trip around Derwentwater, we drove up to Mire House. Its main claim to fame is that Alfred, Lord Tennyson stayed there and was inspired to write his Morte d’Arthur poem. He saw a vision of a hand grasping a sword rising out of the Lake Bassenthwaite. One of the memorials to his time there, is a stone circle surrounding a Round Table.
Nearer home…an early morning visit to Haworth. All quiet in the village, no cars or people.
No more travels for a bit. The editing process for my next book will take up some of my time over the rest of the summer. It’s due out on 1 October and you can see a preview of the cover and blurb for Changing Times on the Affinity Rainbow Publications website.
