Now, Where Was I?

Nature is methodically reclaiming a stone barn at Candlewyck.

I began posting photos from our May-June visit to England about two weeks ago, but then I was distracted by the flower garden and one thing or another, and lost my way. The Cumbria Way, to be exact. And that certainly wouldn’t be proper, as they say in Ulverston, the traditional starting point for the walk northward to Carlisle.

We stayed two nights in Ulverston (and should have booked another) but nevertheless enjoyed the town. Candlewyck was the first of several B&Bs that were home for us, and with its edge-of-town location (the Cumbria Way is just a few hundred meters up the lane) was a quiet precursor for the friendliness we’d find everywhere on our visit.
