So, once I'd dropped off my purchases back at the camper van, I decided I wanted to go out and find out about Faeryland, a sort of cafe that I'd heard of, and then perhaps walk around Grasmere up to Rydal Water.
Well, I can tell you Faeryland is a lovely place to sit and enjoy coffee n cake. You can watch the ducks and birds and enjoy the view across Grasmere. The little rowing boats look fun too.
|Jackdaw. I really like these birds, and crows. They really are quite handsome.|
|Looking across Grasmere from Faeryland.|
I loved all the flowers growing along the walls and edges. I must have looked a right numpty crouching in corners against the side of the road, trying to get the macro feature on my camera to focus. I think the trouble is that the camera is cleverer than me. I try to make it do things my way, and it fights me at every shot!
We reached a compromise in the end though..............................
|The large white house in the centre is Allen Bank. It used to be owned by Wordsworth and must have one of the best views in England.|
|Allan Bank again.|
