Following our dream to live & work in Cumbria has rarely been easy. Even this week we've been making difficult decisions about the long planned alterations to our tiny bungalow. We've been here 5 years now & still have half our stuff in boxes in the undercroft.
But there are some days, like today, that make every ounce of hardship and effort worthwhile. We're working on a commission for our very good friends at Cumbria Wildlife Trust and decided to take advantage of the sunny skies to get a walk done for them in and around Martindale. The end result will be out later in the year accompanied by Steve's fab pics but, for now, I just wanted to share these few shots of what has been a spectacular day in the fells. Full time permanent employment may have its perks but I wouldn't have traded today's felltop sarnie and flask for the fanciest business lunch in the poshest restaurant anywhere. Some things just can't be bought.
