Just a few photographs taken in the summer hols
One day .. hopefully soon, I shall master this posting of photos onto my Blog. It just takes forever and I then run out of time to write. Is it me? Or is there anybody out there who finds it takes for ever to make a post?
Oh well! C'est la vie!
I wanted to share a few photos of the 'Summer Monsoon' we experienced here in the Lakes.
Quite a lot of the summer was taken up by having all my family here at various times or my going to see them. More of that another time. (If you have the patience). Lol!
I was away from journalling for so long that there are a lot of photos and reflections about those times for me to still make a note of here on my journal.
In one of the photos above, my grandson Ryan is cocking a snook at the rain and is stood by Bryan's Koi pond acting daft and singing in the rain. It was a funny moment..one of those you must keep for posterity and show again when they are older.
The others are of a miniature Lakeland village built by a man in his own back garden as a means of making money to help rear his family which began as a hobby. He is unable to work more than two hours a day, some days he can't, because of having M.E.
He has suffered from it for years and this is his way of occupying himself when he has more energy to spare. I reckon he shows up a lot of we abled bodies, me definitely included at the top of that list.
We enjoyed our visit and were enthralled by his exact replication of well known houses and buildings, here in the Lakes, and elsewhere in places such as Cornwall.
Just a little peep for you to admire his talent. I have lots more but it takes so long to upload on here compared to AOL's Albums.
Oh well! We can't go back there now.
To those of you across the pond.. Do have a lovely Thanksgiving.
