The weather is always a topic of conversation in the UK and no wonder when it’s the middle of May and parts of this country are having snow, gale force winds and floods but precious little sunshine! I rarely leave the house without making sure that I have an umbrella in my bag!
Despite the weather yesterday morning Caroline and I walked up through Ealees to the lake.
Look at those clouds. Fortunately for us they only dropped one or two spots of rain on us and really we had a lovely walk. We even sat outside the visitor centre and enjoyed a coffee.
Following a public footpath up through a field away from the lake this little cottage can be found. A date stone above the front door proudly states it was built in 1721.
Harley, Caroline’s dog, is a veritable water baby. He just loves it. He’s a labrador/ border collie cross and we think it must be the labrador in him. Those eyes are beseeching Caroline to throw a stone for him.
My sister, her husband and grandson are leaving the sunshine of Arkansas and heading our way for a holiday in a couple of weeks. I’m really looking forward to their visit and I’m really hoping the weather bucks up before then for them!
I’m linking this post to Outdoor Wednesday.
Until next time,
