Near Sawrey

Tuesday, October 11, 2005

All guests present and correct and the tearooms very quiet so we closed and Helen & I went for a walk up to the tarns.

This is the gate at Buckle Yeat this morning, it did stop raining.

Some fat lambs in the rain, they seem to pose for their photos.

This is a disused quarry on the way back down from Moss Eccles, now outbuildings for the farm further down the lane.
When we got back we got changed and went for a drink with some guests, they were booked by The Injured Jockey fund, which seems a wonderful organisation whose patrons include The Princess Royal and Lord & Lady Oaksey. These guests were really interesting,the guy was from Southern Ireland and had been a jump jockey years ago. He had some wonderful tales to tell, all in a rich Irish accent.
Then back home for tea, it's pouring down again!
