June…… The start of summer proper


A summer view over Derwent Water in the English Lake District, Cumbria.

(June 1st and it the first day of the meteorological summer)

This view is taken from Lodore Woods by Ashness Bridge.  Skiddaw mountain is to your right with the town of Keswick below.

Not always a peaceful spot,  as it is a great place to take in the view.   However, right now The Lake District National Park are still telling folk not to visit.  There will be many locals who are loving the peace of the surroundings to their homes…..  but of course many more who rely upon the Tourist Industry for their income.  It is going to be tough for them.  Nor can I see any real easing of the situation for some time to come..

No matter where you are….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

1st June

    • Don’ worry Sue…… everything is going to be just fine, after all Football is back. In truth I think this last weeks events, the premature announcements of some easing, plus a does of good weather and the vast amount of the public have taken the the matter into their own hands. I really do think the Government has lost the confidence and goodwill of the people. One of our local parks on Friday was getting swamped. The other yesterday was busier than I have ever seen it, busier than it has ever been even when big organised events have been happening. Car Parks all overflowing onto roads. We headed back home. I do hope I am wrong, but I have a bad feeling about what now amounts to total freedom of movement and no social distancing by so many.
