THURSDAY 18th July
And the rain came pouring down! It's been a long time since we have had any rain adn yesterday evening and overnight, it made up for that shortage. The farmers and gardeners will be happy. It freshend s up the air too, of course. I took some time off on Wednesday afternoon adn went down to a lovely spot, Proiory Crossings, adn spenta very pleasant couple of hours reading my Kindle. I finished my book, "The Ascent of Man" by Jacob Bronovski. A marvelous book which I first read 40 or so years ago. The Annual Chapel Island Walk is confirmed as taaking place on SUNDAY 25th AUGUST setting off at 1pm, as always, from the Bay Horse at Canal Foot. It is a guided walk limited in numbers, and escorted for safety by Ulverston Inshore Rescue. I will have tickets available shortly. It is a lov ely walk where children and dogs are welcome. Some time is spent on the island for everyone to enjoy their picnics whilst the kids go off exploring. I will issue firther information as and when I get any.

WEDNESDAY 17th July
Another nice day yesterday with an abundance of glorious sunshine for everyone to enjoy. Although teh sunshine might not be soa apparant today it will come back nicely for the CANAL GALA which will be held at Canal Foot this Sunday. It's a lovely event which I always attend but a word of warning! It gets crowded with cars so if you are going park up well away from the event! Better still, walk there, or go on your bike. Like me. Take a picnic or treat yourself to a drink or even Afternoon Tea at the Bay Horse. It would be nice if teh weather is sunny on Saturday as I am going on teh Jazz Cruise at Windermere with a crowd of good friends.

Wow! What a fabulous weekend! The sun shone brightly, which was perfect for RETRO RENDEZVOUS. There were crowds in town enjoying yet another event in Ulverston. There were Morris Dancers, lots of vintage music and clothing, fabulous vintage cycles and cycle rides, vintage tea-rooms and lots of stalls selling all manner of vintage materials and goods. There was a magnificent display of vintage cars and motorcycles ( which included a wonderful Jaguar E Type, a Dodge "Charger" and a "Back to the Future" De Lorean ). An absolutely brilliant event. On the Sports front who can ever forget this weekend? Hamilton winning the Grand Prix, Djocovic winning the Mens Tennis Final and England winning the Cricket World Cup!!! Fantastic!!!
