Is there anything nicer than a long walk in the sunshine? CC and I enjoyed exploring Claife Heights- land in the Lake District owned by the National Trust. The views of Lake Windermere spectacular – but the tarns in the quieter areas of our walk were beautiful, buzzing with dragonflies and damselflies.
* We looked very carefully for Peter Rabbit in the garden of Beatrix Potter; sadly no rabbits but lots of delicious looking vegetables including some fabulous pumpkins- I am definitely going to have a go at growing these next year.
* A quick visit for some tea at The Tower Bank Arms.
* Waiting for the ferry and a flask of coffee enjoyed.
After a delightful meander down our lanes we picked enough blackberries to make jam.
* Lastly a wonderful evening at the proms – Proms At Parrox – just across the road at Parrox Hall. Picnic, lots of friends and wine – perfect!
