I have to say a big thank you to those people who have been praying for me and encouraging me over the last few days. Prayer truly does change things!
I thought I'd post some of the photos I took while we were on our (wet) holiday in Cumbria. My brother and his wife joined us for a couple of days too and we had a good time looking round Carlisle Castle, visiting a lovely spot with a stream where Phil and his friends used to camp as teenagers and buying ice creams in Keswick. And the weather perked up a bit for a couple of days as well!
A building with a bit of history...
Art work in the underpass to the castle. The names are of Border Reivers. Clans that used to switch sides of the English/Scottish border. After they'd robbed from one side they'd switch and then rob from the other side!
My lovely sister in law...
Medieval wall art
Even the drainpipes are fancy...and dated, 1717
Patiently waiting for the photographer to hurry up!
Phil's old camping site!
Apparently the stream acts as a natural slide here. Not that any of us were trying it!
There were lots of sheep around
Following the sheep tracks through the dense vegetation...kinda like Bear Grylls!!!
Sheep in a less natural environment...probably looking for the pub!
Poetry in the steps
Happy Thursday x
