Cousin Jane and her man married long time, live in Cockermouth's tranquil countryside in the Lake District. Mid-May the flowers were blooming everywhere and the willow tree's green leaves rustled in the wind like they should. The big horse was in the paddock and at days end when the sun went down after eight o'clock at night, we walked to the end of the lane and looked at the river behind the trees, the many sheep in the meadows, the cows on their way to milking....and we took a deep breath on our monthlong vacation and sighed happily smelling the flowers along the way.
The English country side is calming ....
Cousin George and his wife of 40+ years came driving up to Cockermouth from a place close to Manchester....2 hours ... to meet us and enjoy the INDONESIAN food we prepared all morning from the spices I had bought in Amsterdam and brought for cousin Jane. The meal was a real success and we remenisced about our more than ten years of growing up on Java, Indonesia. George played with the very first invented LEGO's ... brown and rubbery! We played Cowboys and Indians with his little wigwam and set of bow and arrows. So far away from the USA - still in my future and now my home.
One lesson learned from the countryside in England is to have proper footwear...out in the country they are called "Wellies" we have them in the USA as just rain boots, which I keep on our ranch in Georgia.
Second lesson, always bring a good coat, warm and weatherproof. It can still be snowing in late May AND IT DID!!!!!
- Pros:prejudiced locals
- Cons:gorgeous countryside
