Once I’ve had my supper I usually snuggle down and watch a bit of telly, but on my first night, the sun in the sky was shouting at me to go and see Keswick at a time I rarely see. I imagine I hadn’t eaten all day so went to get fish and chips for my tea, imagining I’d be staying in afterwards. But when I’d finished I had all the rubbish to throw in a bin. I’d only eaten half the chips as it seemed a ginormous portion, so they were left over too.
So I headed out into the evening light with my camera, rubbish soon disposed of, and headed towards Friars Crag via the lake. The light, of course was totally different and magically lit up an Acer in Hope park
It’s usually the morning light I love best, but this light was also very special. The boats all tied together until morning bathed in the evening sun
The sun getting lower as I trundled along the path
I could sense the business of day time had faded and people seemed more relaxed, quieter, no day time crowd at the Cragg, just people enjoying the evening peace
The silence was suddenly disturbed by a buzzing drone soaring into the sky
Luckily they didn’t stay long. The sound of buzzing bees is fine, the continuous monotone noise of a drone, breaks the peace and feels out of place 🙄, fun as it is for some…
The bench became vacant and I sat for a while watching someone silently paddle boarding by….
….and three random sheep in the distance on the banks of the lake, Surely the rest of the flock must be somewhere 🤔
As I started to think of heading back, I became aware of a smile on my face.
A smile of contentment……and I headed back to my room wondering what I might do tomorrow……🤔
