Greetings Afrocan! A warm welcome to the Canary Islands!

The Lake District is one the best places in the UK to visit but be prepared for all kinds of weather!

Thank you for your visit and your encouraging words..

I agree...the tiny sailboat gives a feeling of vastness to the valley and the stone home tucked in all warm and snug! Like!

Hello Clive and JF - Sorry chaps! Missed this post!

Although I took this photo nearly two months ago, I remember the scene well... You are right about scale.. when I saw the house in this landscape, the all to familiar sense of how small we can be in the bigger scheme of things was in the forefront of my mind..

What a grand place to live...

Thanks to you both for stopping by!
