Lakes and Rain

Our run of good luck came to and end, and the skies over the Lakes turned to their more traditional grey yesterday. Furthermore it started raining today, so here's a standard walkers on a hilltop picture.

This is the peak just below Catbells looking over Derwent Water. Click on it for a larger version.



Here is a stone Stoup. It seems these were made to take wooden gates that slid into the holes. The advantage is that the stone gateposts don't rot away and you don't have to make hinges either. The practice seems to have fallen out of use and individual Stoups stand here and there to puzzle the passing stranger.



More rain pictures tomorrow I suspect...
