A White Easter
Greetings from the Lake District, where we woke up to four or five inches of glorious snow! Much of the snow was gone by the end of the day because of the just-above-freezing temperatures and a bright sun. Nevertheless, it was perfect packing snow and the white cover put everyone in an especially good mood. We took two walks today, one in the snow and one in mostly mud, breaking in between to have a fine Easter brunch. Now we're sitting in front of roaring fire whilst dinner (a lamb roast) cooks in the oven, and JT just opened a bottle of wine. Add that to yesterday's long walk and visits to a brewery and a beer festival, and I think we've made the most of our first two days of a week's vacation.
That's about all I can muster for now (see above references to two walks, wine, and today's pub stop I forgot to mention), so stay tuned for more updates. And Happy Easter!
