Holiday in North Cumbria at the top of the Pennines

The cottage that we stayed in was called Isaacs Byre, which is a converted cow shed, if you care to take a peek, or those who haven't already, here is the

Return of Ms Trubes

.Anyway, he gave me a fab camera for my recent birthday, it's a Panaso…
