A Noticeable Change….

A day of mixed weather fortunes.   A very wet morning that appeared to offer little hope for the rest of the day.  But by afternoon the sun came out to play.  It also illuminated some of the early autumn colours….. the autumnal change may well be subtle at the moment but it is happening.

There as also a noticeably different feel to the Park.  As the school term has started, there were no children of any age around…. in fact the Park, by comparison to the recent weeks,  since lockdown was eased, seemed rather strange.  Just the occasional Dog Walker enjoying the free space to roam…

Mid afternoon and the River Derwent looked quite inviting, all it needed was a rowing boat or two to complete what would be a perfect summer afternoon picture…

I guess we can call this a bonus afternoon.

But as always…..

Relax……. nearly Time for Action

Herdwick-Ram

The Herdwick Ram …. A Handsome Fellow

Looking all relaxed and ready to go.   It will soon be time for the Ram to be let loose with the flock of Herdwick Sheep.  Herdwicks are a hardy mountain sheep, still the popular breed of choice in the Lake District.  Their thick fleeces give protection from all but the severest weathers.  Tough as they are, their faces for me show a softness of  character.
