9th August, 2015...Soaking wet Summer...!!

As this was the first chance we've had for ten days  to grab a walk at Furness Abbey, we set off despite the pouring rain...we are well used to it by now, having had four soaking wet days in Windermere earlier in the week! To be fair, Friday and Saturday were sunny and warm (ish) but more Autumn sunshine than baking hot summer!

 
 
 
 
 
 
Lovely and green....but soaking wet down here! So we opted for a roaring fire and a spot of brunch in Abbey Mill, until the rain eased a bit!
 
 
 
 
Rain macs came out up at Windermere earlier in the week too.....
 
 
 
 
 
...okay....not every day.....
 
 
 
...and there was an incredible view from our cottage window! Blackwell House remains our favourite haunt in the Lakes though...I'd love to own it and live there!!
 
 
 
 
Oh well...we can pretend!
 
 
The Steve Hillman wedding machine is in full swing at the moment....five weddings on the memory cards waiting to be worked on and two more for next weekend. His website and blog have hit over 100,000 views...worth a look at www.shphotographer.co.uk 
 
 
Here's one from his latest Abbey House wedding....he really wants to shoot a wedding at the Belsfield in Bowness...I might even have to go and help if he does...along with our very resourceful helper Gracie, who will be working along side him again at this October's wedding fair at Abbey House.
 
 
 
I did spend a few very pleasant hours yesterday talking weddings with a  good friend of mine...she's on the blog in various places and it is her own wedding in April, 2017, so there will be plenty of wedding talk over the next eighteen months.....especially since the Steve Hillman camera will be shooting it!
 
 
Actually, as I'm sitting here writing this, some blue sky is appearing, so better get my trainers back on and make the most of it!
