A beautiful day
Saturday was a very clear day and in Cumbria probably the most beautiful day of 2013 so far.
On Saturday morning I was out "walking the patch" with my colleagues Graham Roberts and Stephen Haraldsen in Bransty ward in Whitehaven. It was so clear that you could not just see the Isle of Man, as Stephen said you could practically see people moving on the Isle of Man.
In the afternoon my wife and myself had to drive over to Newbiggin near Penrith.
Absolutely gorgeous views of the Downs and the Cumbrian Mountains.
After a rotten week it cheered me up.
