After this mornings endeavours we had breakfast thawed out and set off for a walk up Latrigg. I didn’t get half way. A half mile or so from the A66 I had all ready slip slidied over twice and it’s worse going downhill so we stopped at a place called Ewe How……Also stopped at a place called George Fisher on the way home and purchased, at vast expense, a pair of spikey feet…..Knew I would have to bite on the bullet eventually……Food parcels gratefully received. No meat please after watching the moon being eclipsed by us this morning I think I may have turned into a Vogan……………(The Eagle Comic and Dan Dare if I recollect correctly.)
Wandering up through Latrigg Woods we happened upon a Red Squirrel. Drop dead beautiful they are but unfortunately regarded by Terriers as prey. They quick sticks shot it up a tree. Daft mutts as they are shot it into the sun and by default so so did I. I’ve put a wee circle round it to save you time looking…..A record shot……….A Cliff Richard record shot.
These are the same views but zoomed in a bit….Whinlatter and hiding in the gap Bassenthwaite it has a dab of mist on it. Even if todays images are not of the best I’m not crayoning over all my pictures. For those that don’t know there are Osprey breeding on Bassenthwaite……Not now! You have to come in summer, they fly away in the winter.
Nearly forgot, a polished up Moon being eclipsed by us…………’Every day Is a Winding Road’…..Rarely are they boring.
Tomorrow it’s polish the truck, shopping, a new front tyre or two and stow everything anyhow……..I meant neatly….Ready for a move to Ravenglass on Thursday.
You can’t tell but I think I’m turning into a Touchy Typist……………I can type…… BbAssenThHWwaithe.. without hardly looking at all….!
