15th July 08 - Wet, Wet, Wet

We set out in the rain to go to Harrop Tarn. As we put our boots on the rain got worse. We then battled through soaking shoulder high bracken as the rain got heavier and heavier. We then gave up.

Of course, it brightened up in the afternoon. We went to Holehird Gardens as a consolation prize.

I think this picture gives a very good indication of what a drowned rat might look like
That wonderful view over Holehird
The herbaceous borders are wonderful right now
