Seven snaps for seven days - thirty and thirty one

I have been a bit quiet of late as I have been away on holiday to the Lake District. I had a lovely, relaxing time with lots of walking, reading and knitting. Just perfect really. My holiday fell across two weeks of seven snaps so I am combining them both into the one post here.

A good walk along the canal on a gorgeous sunny day.

Meeting a friend in Manchester for lunch and a catch up.

The first walk of the holiday. A view of Derwentwater from Cat Bells. You can just see Keswick on the left.

A pretty, tiny church that we passed whilst walking the trail of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle in the Newlands Valley.

Looking over to Cat Bells from Friars Cragg. Nice to see the hill we climbed!

We did a lovely walk which took in the atmospheric Castlerigg stone circle.

Rainy weather in the Lakes produces beautiful clouds floating over the mountains.

Sunset over Morecambe Bay.

Lots and lots of big skies here! I am now caught up with my Seven Snaps series and have got my first three photos for week thirty two. I have lots of post ideas in my head so I hope to have them written up and posted soon.


  1. Wow! The Lake District is beautiful!!

    1. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been to!

  2. The skies there are simply breathtaking! Expansive, sweeping, charismatic and beautiful! I bet one can do some amazing cloud watching in the Lake District.

    1. Yes it is an amazing place for big skies and cloud watching. I found that I was often just watching the changing sky when I was sat outside having a cup of tea and trying to read!
