Near Sawrey

Sunday, November 13, 2005

It was a fantastic sunny November day, but there was a ground frost this morning and Helen had to defrost the windscreen, a full turn out at the guesthouse, everyone seemed to have enjoyed their weekend.
First thing this morning Gary from Hill Top farm was bringing in these cows, his daughter Amy and brother Melvin were helping.
This is Esthwaite Water taken from the top of Coopers Lane.

Helen, Alan and me went a walk up to Moss Eccles and expected to see lots of walkers but the only people we met were Denis & Margaret coming back down and neighbours Jimmy & Elizabeth going up. We walked the rest of the walk with them. They had heard the same news as us from Tony & Lorna a blind couple who stay in the village, that their retired guide dog Wallis had sadly died. Lorna has a new dog now called Kerry.
The first Chritmas tree in Sawrey, outside Hill Top shop, I went to take a picture and ended up climbing the steps and putting the ribbon on the top.

Judy Jones from Derbyshire is now my penpal, thanks to our stay at Buckle Yeat in the summer of 2004. We live in Oregon, in the USA, and I look at your blog every day, while trying to sort out a class of adolescents from all over the world. Your pictures provide such memories and a sense that somewhere in the world, there is peace.
