With the wet weather came the flooding which managed to include the connections to our phone and internet.

We're back . . . just in time to wish you all a Merry Christmas for 2015.

A few pictures from the last fortnight . . .

It's been wet out there . . .
. . . but they still have to eat.

The garden is saturated and everything is soft and muddy.    (picture through a rain soaked window)

Chaffinch on the feeder . . .
. . . Squirrel in the nut box.

We had a week away visiting friends and family.

Back home and the rest of the Christmas celebrations can start . . . George Fisher's Christmas night out.

Beautiful decorations at the Borrowdale  Hotel . . .
. . . and we enjoyed the evening with colleagues.

The dogs need a walk each day but not necessarily with the camera . . . today was the exception.

A newly rebuilt river bank was completed in time for the recent heavy rains.

A walk down to Crummock Water was as wet as expected.

The wall across the top the pump house was under water . . . the lake is still a foot or so higher than normal.

The reason for the pink colours is a nicely developing sunset.

Back home and it's only 4pm . . . on the shortest day of the year.

After a day in work I stroll back through Keswick with the camera.

The pictures will tell the story . . .

George Fisher
Treeby and Bolton

The Moot Hall
Inn on the Square

Christmas Advent windows in town.

Our favourite Cheese Shop.

Check out the sheep . . .
. . . you'll see more next year.

Lovely pictures of the last Vulcan flight.
Time for some local carol singing.

Oh come all ye faithful . . . enjoying ourselves and raising funds for the NSPCC.

Including refreshments to keep out the cold.

Locally Cockermouth and Keswick have suffered flooding . . . as has much of Cumbria and parts of Southern Scotland.

Tonight the river levels are up again.

Goat Bridge in Cockermouth by street light.

Closed to all traffic at present.

Nice red light till you realise it comes from commercial driers.

But the town is back in business . . . up and running within days of the big flood this time.

Station Street.

Banks the Ironmongers
Prose and decorations.

Cumbria is "Open for Business" . . . and ready to welcome you here.

Our local Lorton Shop is re-open.  Lee and Arwen are ready to greet you too.

Teas, coffees, lovely cakes and a whole range of foods and local crafts . . . definitely worth a visit.

- - - o o o - - -

Time to stop and to enjoy Christmas ourselves . . . hope you have a good one.
