Another cloudless day, near Brown Howe, Coniston
by the deer fence, Wharton Tarn, a walk to Summer Hill
so many Hawthorns flowering this year
back to the car, a scary beetle looking in the driver's window, maybe works for Volkswagen?
2.30 pm. The S. Y. Gondola glides away on another tour, Brantwood across the lake

> Hi Tony, At last got around to commenting on the FABULOUS photos on your trip to Arran. Well suffice to say I took the print off them! So many happy memories, and apart from the Distillery (which was in the process of being built when we were last there, nothing else seems to have changed. Perfect. What a shame we can't say that about a lot of things. The nostalgia also comes when you journey back to Ardrossan on the ferry - it was always a time for tears! Love the photos from early this morning - beautiful. We're basking in very hot sunshine with not a cloud in the sky today. Lovely to wander in the garden and listen to the sounds of folk pottering around and listening to the blackbird singing away on his usual perch at the top of very large conifer next door!!! We have so much to be thankful for. Cheers for now.... Enjoy the summer. Joan

Disclaimer - 'THE WEATHER' is only my personal opinion - if you come to the Lakes and get sunburnt (or soaked ) - the author of this page bears absolutely no responsibility. You are welcome to copy any of these pictures for your own use, but please credit the photographer, Tony Richards, or add a link to these pages. Most pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ60. Occasionally with my trusty Nikon D50 with a Tamron AF18 - 200mm macro zoom lens, which feels like a tank compared with the Lumix!
