That looks gorgeous-the sort of place you’d want to row too and just enjoy

Beautiful shot, Helen. Had to look it up. Can you believe I grew up in England and never visited the lake district?

    You probably didn’t go ‘cos it rains there so much

      I suspect I was too busy with work and too busy chasing after other things
      before emigrating for South Africa!

        Oh you busy wee bee.

What a lovely photo. I guess not too overcrowded! Would love to use some of it in a little painting. A very unusual sight for South Africans. Do I have your permission?

    Hi Liz. I’d be delighted for you to use this for a painting. It’s a scene just begging to be drawn or painted. I would if I could.

It looks so lovely in the sun and brings back happy memories from many a good walk around there :o)

    It’s so lovely. And so very dog-friendly.

A magical island in the sun.

    And today it is an island in the pouring rain. But we’re home now.

      Your weather sounds as temperamental as our weather.

        HMB · 29 March 2017 at 17:56

        Yes, Tee-shirts on our walk yesterday , log burner on in kitchen today. ☃️

          Laurie Graves · 29 March 2017 at 18:05

          The weather teaches us to be flexible and to take things as they come. And, of course, to complain.

          HMB · 29 March 2017 at 18:11

          Yes. I like a good moan sometimes. And we in UK mention the weather all the times to strangers in the street, in shops, wherever. It’s a sharing thing .
          My Thai friends tell me that they never talk about the weather as it’s so predictable in the tropics. Instead their polite conversation is around what you’re having for your dinner.

          Laurie Graves · 30 March 2017 at 14:02

          We in Maine talk a lot about the weather. It really does matter to us, as it does to you, too. However, I love the idea of talking about what you’re having for dinner. Yes!

          HMB · 30 March 2017 at 14:15

          Yes, I would have plenty to say about that too.
