Ruskin's View above the River Lune at Kirby Lonsdale
A breather after the busy-ness of Holy Week & Easter. On Monday we went by train to Lancaster to catch up with our son - now halfway through his doctoral course at the University. We visited Kirby Lonsdale, where the weather was VERY Lake District - sunshine, followed by hailshowers - you might just see that in this picture of the Churchyard.
The next day a drive up to Windermere was even more amazing - at one stage a rainbow appeared almost at our feet.
Holehird gardens are a revelation. Run entirely by volunteers of the Lakeland Horticultural Society, there give spectacular views of the Lake and hills beyond.
Then a visit to Townend, a National Trust Property on the other side of the Lake. We seemed to see and do a great deal in the two days we were in Lancashire - and Cumbria.
Since then, there has been a visit to Oxford - but I'll save that for another blog.
