A bit of serious walling in evidence here

As we come to the end of July the main holiday season is in full swing with lots of people visiting Hill Top next door, we have a full house again and yet more Australian visitors due in, we have had more Aussies this year than any other nationality apart from Brits of course

This is an early morning shot of Buckle Yeat in full sunshine.

We had a trip across the ferry to Kendal yesterday and I overheard a conversation in the next car and the man said to his wife " I'll be honest when I was following the signs to the ferry I thought Ferry was a village"

A fantastic sunny day yesterday and likewise today, it was hard enough trying to take pictures of the lumbering Vulcan bomber on Saturday but yesterday with the Red Arrows speeding across the sky it was an altogether different challenge, we only have a little pocket camera so I was just pointing and shooting and hoping for the best, I ended up with a few shots of sky only but did get some decent shots, lots more on the facebook page.

United Nations again this week, guests from America,Australia, Germany and a couple who live in the United Arab Emirates

Al last a taste of summer! it was a good day yesterday and an even better one today. We trekked up to Scale Ivy and took these pictures of the Vulcan bomber. Today its the Red Arrows so we hope to repeat the walk later

What started with trimming the clematis in the back garden sort of grew into a major clear out, we had so much rubbish I had to borrow a trailer to move it. It lets loads more light in and opens up more ground for planting, and Denis is salivating at which plants to put in.

Windermere Air Festival this weekend so hopefully clear skies and we can get up onto Scale Ivy to watch some of the displays.

We have just had a torrential shower and had to supply Mr Mac with a brolly
He is doing well raising a few pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support if only we could hit a dry spell he would do even better.

Terrible spell of weather at the moment, rain and wind, the only saving factor is it seems to be all over the country.
An eventful weekend with a guest ending up in Lancaster Hospital and his wife stranded there unable to drive back so Saturday night I was a hospital taxi service and drove to Lancaster to pick her up.

An international theme this week with guests from India, Japan and a family from Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

We had a good walk yestreday over Claife Heights and along the shores of Windermere paying a visit to the Claife Viewing Station, The vvictorian viewing station is owned by the Natioal Trust and they are currently trying to make it secure and are open to suggestions as to what it could be used for.

Helen assures me this is a wild orchid

Its fantastic sunny day and we have no departures or arrivals so we will be able to get a walk this afternoon.
This is a final shot of Mr McGregor, he is to be replaced tomorrow with a new model, this one is going in to retirement.
