My blog today is a blast from the past as work has been so busy this week to be able to do very much. It has been inspired by a few challenges, so I would like to thank City Sonnet’s for the photo a day and color and letter challenges which for today is old fashioned and the letter W, Cee’s photography for her fun foto challenge for this week which is red and Little pieces of me for this months go on an adventure challenge which is animals.
So today I have been looking back at some photographs from our honeymoon to the Lake District. Mr H and I love the Lake District so what better a place to spend a few days after our wedding. It was ideal as Charlie dog was able to come with us. We visited a hotel that we had been to before in Grasmere where we didn’t actually stay in the hotel but in one of three mews just to the side of the hotel so we were a little bit more independent for Charlie. The day before we were to return home Mr H’s car that was parked in the hotel car park was backed into by an employee and damaged so we had to spend an extra night there while waiting for a courtesy car.
On the day we were leaving to go home we thought that we would also try to visit done new places on our way so that we could make the most of the day. One place we visited was Threlkeld Quarry and mining museum.
This was such a fabulous place as the dog was also allowed to walk around the museum and grounds with us.
It was fabulous to see all of the old fashioned machinery used when it was a working mine and quarry.
I definitely had to get a close-up picture of the great big red wheel. It was probably taller than me.
While we stopped at one of the picnic tables to grab a quick drink and just take in the views we saw this cow in the field and I just had to get a picture.
