After enjoying Cumbrian snow and ice for a while we have decided to make tracks south again and work on the suntans.
This is a view of Skiddaw from the top of High Pike, taken after a heavy snowfall in January.
Mavis is looking a bit cold and in need of some sun.
Snow always drifts in to the lane up to our house, shown on the right of this picture, and being north facing holds on to it for a long time. We had planned to move south this Wednesday but Nia spotted a severe weather and snow warning yesterday so we hastily finished packing and left early this morning. We had a good trip down on the edge of the storm and got into Devizes Camping and Caravanning club site at about 3 pm, to a friendly welcome, as promised. The site is about 50 yards from the Kennet and Avon canal and we took the dogs out for a wet and windy walk. Invigorating.
