Waiting to be of service

It is likely that most of the photos for this week’s challenge will include people or animals. My photo is of an inanimate object waiting to be of service on a hot summer’s afternoon.

The subject for the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge is Waiting. (No photo challenge next week.)

Two bridges

This week’s challenge from the Daily Post is about bridges or connections. My photo includes two bridges. The footbridge connects a public path to one belonging to a school. It provides a safe route and a good view of the beck. The bridge in the background takes the road over the beck and has a narrow pavement on one side only.

I stood on the footbridge to take a photo of a sycamore tree, which I have as my pinned tweet (at present).

Wordsworth House and Cockermouth

Earlier this month hubby and I went to have another look at the exhibition at Wordsworth House in Cockermouth. We also had a good look round the garden, which has recovered well from the floods of December 2015, due mostly to the hard work of the head gardener and her team. On a short tour of the house we learned some things which we hadn’t heard on a previous tour.

Afterwards we had a walk along the river, more or less retracing the route we had taken on a visit last year. The river was flowing quite quickly.
