We have been staying up in Cumbria, but in the Yorkshire Dales National Park – if that makes sense. In the friendly village of Sedburgh which is nestled at the foot of the Howgill Hills. We have had quite a bit of rain, but have also had a lovely time.

We set off for a ‘steamer’ trip on Ullswater (Lake District), it was a nice bright day, but somewhat windy on the lake. We stopped at Howtown halfway up the lake for lunch (The town of Howtown is rather smaller than a modern-day town!) at the Hotel. Which had a sunny, sheltered beer garden, with rocks for the ‘little man’ to climb on, very pleasant. This view is just around the corner from the hotel, waiting for the boat to come back.
On the Hawes Road

This is a sketch is on the road, coming back to Sedburgh from Hawes.
Coming back from Hawes – it is a very windy day – nearing Sedburgh. We were stopped by a large tree branch hanging above the road in the telegraph wires. So the ‘little fella’ was very interested to watch the police and workmen with chainsaws, as they dealt with the situation.
