Jo is in the Lakes and her son and grandson have come over for a visit to see her.
Steve and a friend wanted to climb Helvellyn today
so Jo brought Jamie over to see us for lunch and a walk here in Loweswater.
Well used to big dogs, Jamie enjoyed playing ball with Harry.
The feeling was mutual !
We were able to bring out our stored toys used previously by our own grandchildren and other young visitors.
Two activities in one . . . riding and keeping Harry entertained.
Hand and feet skills needed by both !
Nana Jo and Bethan keep a watchful eye on the preceedings.
" Jamie, mind you don't bump into Jodie !" . . . says Bethan by the look of it !
Out comes the Duplo with Roger getting down to the serious building business.
Just the right height for a little boy to crawl through and knock down, again and again . . .
Time for socks and shoes . . . and a walk to the lake.
"Look at the tractor"
The "going is soft" after all the recent rain.
Jamie was making sure his 'push-me and pull-you' were doing a good job !
A lovely panorama of Crummock, Grasmoor to the left, the Whiteless ridge, High Snockrigg, Rannerdale in the centre, Haystacks
with Great Gable behind Haystacks in the far distance and the High Stile ridge to the left,
as we walked down to the Pump House.
A peaceful scene over the wall . . . on the way from the Pump House to the small beach.
Not peaceful for long as serious games commence . . .
Hold your cursor over the picture to help Jamie throw a stick for Harry
A beautiful afternoon . . . Hopegill head and Sand Hill to the left of Grasmoor at the top end of Gasgale Gill Valley.
On our way home and more fun and games . . . this time 'pooh-sticks'.
It has been an all too rare summer's day here but there are signs of Autumn in our garden.
This lovely rowan is hanging with bright red berries as we enjoy a cuppa and cake
sitting on our outside bench after arriving home.
