This past weekend, 14-16th October, I spent in the Lake District. The trip was part of my program’s included events. Adventure Weekend, as it’s called, is a time for active and adventurous souls to climb mountains, scramble gorges, and hike trails. Or, for the “literary minded,” there was a trip to Dove Cottage and Hilltop Farm to look forward to! Exactly right for me....
A Summary, and a Plea for Pardon

I’ll most likely write things chaotically… a bit out of order. I’ll do my best to be as organized as possible about it! I don’t think I’ve told you about the British museum tour.
