River walk

Strange structures and peaceful pastures were encountered on our river walk around Dartington Hall Estate - 8.2 miles. Rewarded with lemon cake and tea at the Rare Breeds Farm!

Wedding Anniversary

What better way to celebrate 37 years of marriage than to have a night in a Travel Lodge in Glastonbury and visit a Craft for Craftets fair at the Royal Bath and West show ground. The fair was rubbish, but we had a lovely walk around Glastonbury Abbey.

Back door to garage

When a garage is used to house a freezer etc, then when the only way in is by the up-and-over door, it can be tiresome!  So, when Dan son gave me an old external door, I felt some diy was in order.  Result = new back door into garage.

Look at who visited us today!

Tony & Katy brought Cloe and Ruby to see us at Threlkeld. They brought mum and Betsy also, and we all watched the river rise almost to its banks as we had torrential rain - unusual for the Lake District!
Then tonight, Lydia arrived from the big city, all a-ready to hand in her Masters dissertation.

Back towards the clouds!

After a long drive north yesterday we just had to get up on the mountains today. From Buttermere Lynn & I climbed up Whiteless Ike, then on up to Wandope before taking the final climb up to Grasmoor at 852m.  We chose a very steep descent down the ridge running to Lad Hows, then up he quite valley behind Rannadale Knotts (a battle site apparantly) and back to the van.

We are braving the Cornish Summer weather once again to make our annual pilgrimage to Wadebridge and Creation Fest. Today, 230 young people responded the message that Jesus loves them!
The TRUTH will set you free!
