Today’s guest picture shows another of the book benches spotted by my sister Mary. Prizes for guessing the book title without looking at the writing in the corner.
The curious may click the map to see where I did my sitting.
I was sitting about for so long that I had no time to take pictures of birds or flowers and indeed the day was so hazy that was not much point in taking pictures at all (but that has never stopped me).
I sat around both in Scotland and in England and this involved crossing the Esk and the Eden rivers. Neither was at their best in the gloomy light.
In England it is a different world from our stone built environment. Over there they have bricks and welcoming pubs.
In the evening I went off to Carlisle with Susan and I did some more sitting down as we had a final practice for our concert on Saturday. This was the first one for three weeks with all six of our group present so it was quite important.
So that was it, an unusually dull but very satisfying day.
Note: Who was Petronius Fortunatus? Like me today, he was a centurion on Hadrian’s Wall. As there was little or no wind, I felt very Fortunatus.
