The weather forecast said to expect torrential rain yesterday.
So of course we had glorious sunshine.
Someone should develop a “random weather forecaster” web site.
I’m sure it would have the same accuracy rate as the Met Office.
But, I’m not complaining. 🙂
For yesterday we went to Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter.
It nestles in the tiny hamlet of Near Sawrey, near Hawkshead. The countryside around there is of the “gently rolling” rather than “dramatic and awe inspiring” type.
is, apparently, just as it was when Beatrix lived there.
The rooms are small and dark, but cosy and welcoming.
The drawings, sketches and watercolours on display are breathtakingly good.
The gardens? Quintessentially English. Herbaceous, pretty
And look who we saw taking a rest on a tree trunk in the sunshine
He’s obviously been in Mr McGregors garden again as his little blue jacket was nowhere to be seen :-).
Finished the day with a woodland walk down to Windermere where we saw these girls
And managed to convince youngest child for a whole five minutes that these were rare, amphibious water cows.
Nearly as much fun as the time we convinced oldest child that he was going to a cheese farm to catch wild cheeses.
