Weekend Reflections

This weekend it was my pleasure to welcome my younger son Carwyn (a.k.a. Tortoiseshell) to Maalie Court. Here are a few random images from the weekend.

The beach at Askam-in-Furness at the bottom of my street

A train ride along the coastal route took us to Ravenglass
and the remains of a Roman bath site

Carwyn captures the estuary at Ravenglass...

...before a stroll through the autumn leaves.

Participation in Maalie's research project, colour-ringing a Marsh Tit

A visit to the market town of Ulverston, the home of Laurel and Hardey
to see the memorial statue...

...before I was dragged into a tea room for tea and cake.

A weekend of unsettled weather, but some fine memories

Ah, what a fine, strapping specimen of of a handsome, young man we have here (and your son is kinda' cute, too)!

Lovely to see he shares your love of nature. You live in a delightful corner of the UK, Maalie, you are truly blessed.

For all the complaints, you look like you are loving your little tea party:-)

quite right Kiwi! for every tea room Carwyn dragged Maalie into, Maalie would have dragged Carwyn into two pubs!

Glad you could have such a good time with Carwyn. A time I doubt either one of you will every forget.
