Near Sawrey

A couple of shots from our bedroom window yesterday, it's tough living here but someone has to do it.

One of the big news items in todays Westmorland Gazette is an incident that happened last week when the ferry killed a couple of cygnets just as it was coming in to dock, it has caused a bit of a stir and the RSPCA have got involved.
