Cumbria is a special place indeed

Cumbria is very special – not the least because of the presence of that culinary magician and Birdman Maalie. 

It was my first trip there and will not be my last – although it is unlikely that I will go there again in winter. Two jumpers, two pairs of socks, Ugg boots and Ugg gloves could not keep out the chill from the Irish Sea and my loose ribs were rattling around all week. 

I took some photos and some turned out quite nicely. I have put a few on the Picasa album on my Blog. The link is never there so just click on one of the photos and you will eventually find your way. 


  1. Ah, that is Wastwater. The deepest lake and the highest, steepest, scree slopes in England.
    But Badger, why didn't you tell me you were cold? I could have switched on the heater in the car and the central heating in the house.

  2. Beautiful photos - such an enchanting place - I would love to go back one day

  3. some really great photos there badger! i've been to cumbria twice... its a really beautiful part of england
