Back in the saddle

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s holiday in the Lake District last month.  She describes it as, “Another compulsory bridge.” The weather improved a good deal today and I was able to walk up to the High Street  without any rainwear on to take my turn dispensing information to tourists at ourContinue reading “Back in the saddle”

Chasing Mrs Tootlepedal
