The Princess and the Pea moves closer to completion, with a comfortable (or uncomfortable) bed ready for her to sleep on.
The princess herself, is just having her hair done and will be along shortly.
Meanwhile, we had a great trip to the Lake District. We got in a couple of lovely walks, some nice food and Tom got to meet the Lake Wardens.
On the first day we walked from Bowness to Lakeside at the southern end of Lake Windermere, catching the last ferry back.
Day two saw as jumping in the car and travelling a short distance to walk around the two lakes at Rydal – Grasmere and Rydal Water.
We stopped at the Rydal Hall Tea Shop for cake and a view.
Before leaving on Monday morning, to return home, Tom got a chance to meet up with the Windermere Lake Wardens. This was as part of his work with HM Coastguard, the Lake Wardens look after Windermere, they operate a patrol and rescue service.
And, bringing the blog right up to date, yesterday we visited a gallery to which I’ve never been before. Oriel Ffin y Parc Gallery began in 2010. They represent over forty artists, ranging from exciting young newcomers to some of the most established and successful artists currently working in Wales. Their artists are diverse in their styles and subjects, but share strong Welsh roots and connections. The gallery is set over two floors and they have a coffee shop and wine bar where you can sit, relax and contemplate the vibrancy and variety of contemporary Welsh art.
