I’m up in Cumbria [England’s most unpopulated and most scenic county, the last county on the West Coast before hitting the Scottish border], taking a break from the big city.
I got back from San Francisco two days ago feeling exhausted. Not unhappy by any means, just a bit worn out. I just felt the need to decompress, so I bought a train ticket.
My initial plan is to stay here a few days, though I might stay longer. Hoping to get some reading and drawing done. Perhaps get a little fellwalking in.
I never take long vacations. Maybe I’m dong it now. We shall see.
[I’m staying at Warwick Hall, where English Cut has its offices.]
Good for you. Haystacks takes some beating IMO.
Gosh, that place and the inn look idyllic. Enjoy your respite.
nice gaff – enjoy the clean air and hope to see you in the Coach and Horses soon!
I live near where you are visiting and, like the photo courtesy of Avtost at Flikr, the rain is soft today. Cumberland wouldn’t be the same without the wet stuff. Hope you managed a few hills.
Sounds nice. I think you deserve a long break.
You are about 40 miles north of my home turf and I feel homesick. Indeed a tranquil, and melancholic place.
