As promised….a few snaps of my own from our week away.
Welcome to Priest End Cottage, Chapel Stile, The Lake District.
We have never stayed in a village in The Lakes before, preferring to stay in the middle of a hill, no neighbours barring sheep (pun intended) no phone reception, & sometimes even no TV.
This time we opted for a wee bit of civilisation.
In Chapel Stile, we had neighbours (the whole village was pretty much holiday lets apart from the nice little 90yr old lady we found down the street) We had a village shop, a Church, and a pub! Happy Days!
My Nikon didn’t come out much as it rained so much I didn't want to get it wet, and the old point and shoot was just handier for climbing the hills with. (there just aren't enough hands available to cling onto the rocks, sort the clothing out …waterproofs are on and off constantly…. and hold on to the prized DLSR)
This day however, I was home alone so I took it out to play.
I took a little visit to the church next door. I like looking at church’s. I had heard on the grapevine that there was a coffee morning, but there was no one there when I went in. (I resisted helping myself to the tins of biccies that were on the table…in case HE was watching
See we did get a bit of sun light
Stained glass is so beautiful
The Church sat on a hill over looking the village. See that hill in the distance? We walked to the other side of that one day.
After I had been to church, I walked down to the village shop, bought some bottles of wine, then lit the fire and read my book, and waited on the return of The Adventurers.
More holiday snaps coming up.
I’ve spent the day catching up on laundry (bleuuuuuur), getting some stock ready for a stall I have at a market next weekend (excited!!!!) and visiting family.
How about you?
