Bampton, Lake District
We are away. Mom and I rented a car and drove down to the Lake District. We’re staying at a friend’s holiday cottage in a small town named Bampton. No phone service without taking a hike. No wifi. Solar panels on the roof of the pub. Lots of sheep and stone walls.
We brought books, I brought writing and lots of thoughts. We have walking shoes and a list of places to visit, including Beatrix Potter’s house, and the Bookstore capital of England.
We’ll be here for 4 days, and then we’re spending the weekend on the Isle of Skye. Hopefully lots of writing time. Lots of space in my head.
Goodnight, better pictures soon.
