Last Leg(s)

I will be somewhere over Greenland or parts west when this post goes live. Due to erratic (or non-existant) internet recently, much of the story will remain untold until next week. In the meantime here are a few more images from the last part of our walk:

from the day we walked up from Patterdale and around Brotherswater,

part of the walk from Pooley Bridge to Haweswater,

classic footpath sign in front of baled bracken,

the Haweswater Hotel (you can just see the window of our room on the first floor above the shrubbery),

the view from our room,

and finally, one of England’s rare and elusive mammals, the red squirrel. The Haweswater Hotel plays host to at least three of them.

Back to normal posting next Sunday!

    you’ve been having a wonderful trip, or it looks that way! how wonderful for you and the red squirrels, to meet one another.

      The squirrels were a special treat. I grew up seeing American red squirrels regularly throughout my childhood, but the only evidence of Eurasian red squirrels on all my previous trips to England was occasional road signs warning that drivers should slow down because the squirrels lived in the area. I had not even seen them in one of the commonest viewing situations for British wildlife — squashed on the road. The one hazard involved in their presence was that in the early morning when one walked out the front door of the Haweswater Hotel, one might have to dodge peanuts being thrown from upper bedroom windows to feed them.
