I made my second visit up to the Cumbrian coast yesterday, this time accompanied by Sue and CeeCee. The contrast in the weather between last week’s visit and yesterday could hardly have been more stark. Last week Storm Barbara meant ferocious wind and torrential rain left me pretty wet even with some serious waterproofs on. Yesterday, we were able to admire the full beauty of the Lakes as we made our way through the Southern Lakes then up the coast road to meet at Egremont Conservative Club. It is a beautiful part of the World but you can sense its remoteness.
