Four days of fun with all our friends at our country retreat allowed mum and dad to travel to Ireland last week for a few days holiday and relaxation.
Damage caused by Storm Desmond to the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail in Carlisle has caused disruption to the popular walking route which may last a year.
Storm Desmond and the resulting floods in Carlisle have uncovered a treasure trove of artefacts including bottles and pottery.
Damage left in the wake of Storm Desmond and the flooding that occurred in Carlisle is slowly being revealed. However, the cost of repair may never be quantifiable.
As hail and heavy rain battered Carlisle earlier today we took a trip into Carlisle and were amazed at the damage to the Sheepmount Athletics stadium and the sporting facilities in Bitts Park.
Have we not been here before ? Memories from over a decade surface once more as many areas of Carlisle flood once more.
Escaping from the house leaving Rufus to face the clippers and training my human dad and I went in search of autumn colours along the banks of the River Eden in Carlisle.
Autumn has certainly arrived in Cumbria with the cold morning air and the golden coloured trees.
A few weeks ago we mentioned that the rail bridge over the River Eden in Carlisle was having a bit of work done to it so we thought we would take a look to see how it is getting on.
Mum and dad decided it was time for us to have a doggy holiday and as this was rufus’ first, a weekend away seemed appropriate.
