Gorgeous Granddaughter and Gorgeous Granny!

Standard

This week I’m having time out with Gorgeous Granddaughter and it’s lovely. We spent time exploring the garrison town of Richmond North Yorkshire. I am “catching her young” regarding crafting and ┬átreasure (vintage) hunting. We,well she,found some cute silver spoons and a butter knife! We enjoyed a hunt around a fantastic multi roomed antique shop called York House(Antiques) http://www.yorkhouseantiques.co.uk

We spent a while preparing strawberries, and then ate them! We also bought some blue and silver wool to practice our knitting (it had to have sparkle) and returned to her home to get the campervan ready for tomorrow.

A lovely day was enjoyed despite rain and awful British Summer weather.image

Sunset over Derwentwater

Standard

The end of a beautiful day here in Keswick.

imageToday was fabulous. Hubs and I went in different

directions for a walk (that’s not why it was fabulous!). He went up Skiddaw and I went on the bus to Grange. I walked through the village, over the duck boards on the Derwentwater flood plane to The Lodore Hotel. I then walked to Ashness and caught the bus back to Keswick. Oh that was after a mile and a half through the woods into Keswick from the camp site. I probably only walked four miles but it was glorious.

imageI saw this poster outside the church in Grange. Seemed very apt as we have spent much time dodging weather-successfully. We’ve managed to watch the weather forecast and style a walk around the predicted rain! Not had too much rain but just enough to keep the dust down!
