4th October, 2015...Looking forward and looking back!

After a beautiful week of weather viewed from a classroom window, we woke up to a flat, grey day, rather misty, and cold enough for coats!! We kind of like Furness Abbey with that sort of weather as a back's a bit...La Bell Dame sans merci....

                         O WHAT can ail thee, knight-at-arms,

                                Alone and palely loitering?
                            The sedge has wither’d from the lake,
                                       And no birds sing.....

                ....flat and grey, like I said! However, the Steve Hillman camera has taken some lovely photos this week which do make the most of the sunshine.....

.....he does get about a bit through the week! The colours of autumn are starting to show themselves down here at the moment....
...but the beck is so dry, you can walk along it...let's hope for some rain this week!
Beautiful wedding for the Steve Hillman camera yesterday ( I have to say CAMERA because he had a disaster at the start of it and dropped one of his cameras, putting it out of action, so he had to shoot the whole thing on ONE camera...I thought that's what he did anyway! Still looks good though!). We know the bride, and she looked lovely....
...and the Lake cruise was a bonus, if a little cold!
And he did get a shot of Langdale Chase, where we have been invited for Christmas lunch this year!! The Hillmans and Exleys hob-nobbing with Mr. Nobblet himself!!
We have had a bit of nostalgia this week because I woke up with a sound track playing in my head, as I often do, and this day it was Styx's famous Babe...a real blast from our past, so we've dug out all our Styx albums and been listening to them....Pomp Rock!!!
Tommy Shaw on guitar...can't beat that!
