Our World Tuesday - Buttermere


I had not intended to use these pictures here – but I came to the conclusion that I really rather like them!  They were taken the last time I visited the UK – it was a wonderfully mellow day that ended with a couple of pints as the sun faded.
These are shots of the fells that surround Buttermere in the English Lake District.  It was a really good walk, with “good” being defined by the quality of the company, the clarity of the light and the amount of chocolate eaten.   We also had a dog for company, which was both a novelty and a source of amusement.
I used these pictures in the latest post on my other blog – you can find the first half on my thoughts on migration here.  (If you have not visited my “other blog” I hope you can find the time to pop over and have a look)
You can find more pictures from around the world here at Our World Tuesday.
Enjoy the pictures.
