Friars Crag

Jocelyn over on Cuckootree has starts a new meme today "Our Wonderful World Tuesday "to celebrate the beauty and diversity of the world" and also will be giving away a Mu & Me Postcard.  How could I resist.  I'll  start on home ground with a view from Friars Crag, a promontory on the shores of Derwentwater,  John Ruskin called this one of the three most beautiful scenes in Europe (no idea what he considered the other two to be).   He may have been biased because like me he lived in the county and also his earliest memory was being taken to Friars Crag as a child.  It is a popular place for tourist and photographers alike.  If you took your camera there this week there would be a lot more snow than the sprinkling on this card.

Our Wonderful World Tuesday has a neat little badge too

Thank-you Joy for joining in. You have the perfect name don't you think? ^_^ I am not sure if I ever saw Friars Crag but I have been to Cumbria and lived near Windermere. It is certainly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been - great poets have walked there and been inspired.

It is absolutely beautiful. I have only a very sketchy knowledge of the Lake District, sadly.


I love that it looks so serene and empty [of people].
But you said it is a popular place...
Oh well!!
