A Quiet Bank Holiday

As it was a Bank Holiday I decided to go far from the madding crowd (or in my case, maddening crowd)  Therefore I continued my exploration of Cumbria.

Went to Arnside, a most southerly tip of the county (very busy, took views of the bridge to Grange-over-Sands)   Visited Milnthorpe (had one of Sue’s Breakfast’s Buns)   Next to Ravenstonedale (to photo church but it was closed)  Beautiful scenery towards the Penines with the heather in bloom.  Applebury-inWestmoreland, reminded me I was still in the old Westmoreland. (photographed tree-lined main street and bridge where the horses are washed during the fair.)  Temple Sowerby, now mercifully bypassed by the buasy A66.  Culgaith, meant to photo the Pea, reputedly the largest village green in Cumbria being four acres.  (missed it, so took the war memorial instead.  How can I miss four acres?)

The weather forecaster gloomily forecast a cloudy day.  Yes, there was some cloud, but also sun, no wind and no rain.  Oh, beautiful sunny Cumbria.
