Going to a drier part of the country: the Lake District

Or…Troutbeck again!

The Lake District is, truth to tell, probably wetter even than Somerset at this moment, but generally the water is where you expect it to be. My previous post gave some idea of the (apparently) 25 square miles of temporary lake around these parts.DSCF4392

There have also been complaints that these gates are padlocked when they shouldn’t be, thus making it difficult to walk through……??? Duh!  It’s good to complain!

Anyway, in anticipation of heading North, I’ve been drawing and painting from sketches and photos so that I can replace – and hopefully add to – the drawings that Gareth and Carly sold at Christmas from their new tearoom at the TroutbeckPost Office. Yes – both pictures sold! I was so pleased. So here are some of the fruits of my labour:

And finally headed for the hills:

From Troutbeck to Wansfell Pike

I know I’ve done it before, but I just love this path.

We’ll be staying  not quite  as close to the Mortal Man, but nearer to the Queen’s Head! Cheers!
