a walk in the village

Yesterday I went for a walk in our village ( Bowness on Windermere).
It is five minutes walk from where I live.
As you can see we are very fortunate to live in such a wonderful part of the world.

I never take it for granted.

All in a short walk on an errand. Fabulous eh?
Hope you had a great weekend too.

I loved our visit to Bowness although Jordan was a bit phased by the swans - which were as tall as he was at the time.

We should come over more often, maybe a week in the summer would be nice.
