Back from a snowbound Coniston Village

Back in Edinburgh now, after a very enjoyable week located within a snowbound Coniston Village (down in the Lake District). We were staying in a cottage right next to one of Coniston's better local pubs - a total tragedy :-(

This first picture is the view from Brantwood House, John Ruskin's last residence, looking across Lake Coniston to the Old Man of Coniston ... stunning, to say the least! Brantwood House is well worth a visit.

We also managed a fair bit of walking on the Old Man of Coniston itself - the conditions were perfect for some winter-training: here's Junior getting some practice in ;-)

Unbelievable weather for the last few days of March??

Thankfully, all the travelling went smoothly (if not slightly more slowly than usual) and we got back to Edinburgh safely for the Easter Weekend and some traditional, Sunday egg-rolling on Arthur's Seat :-)

Back to work - and some semblance of reality - on Tuesday :-(
