Day 181 Rest Day in Lancaster

Rest Day

Zephyrine’s house, Lancaster

This morning was mostly spent chatting with Zephyrine; an incredibly interesting and fascinating lady. I also managed to get some admin done. 

In the afternoon Zephyrine took me to visit some friends of hers – a coppicer who grows willow and makes wonderful baskets, and a homeopath who weaves wool on a proper loom. Lovely people and I got to visit their herd of Shetland sheep.  

Feeding the sheep
 On the way back through Lancaster we drove up to the top of the hill and looked at Lancaster’s very own Taj Mahal, the Ashton Memorial, with its commanding views of the city.

 Dinner this evening was roadkill pheasant (that I learned how to prepare) with vegetables from the allotment and farm garden and foraged blackberries. Very tasty indeed.  

A lovely, and almost free, dinner

    Pheasant……makes a change from pie and mash in a boozer. Enjoy the break…now let’s get back to 18+ a day…….especially as the coastline is reasonable flat to South Port and beyond…..never walked the rest though too scarred. On on Juice.

    Oh my, the Ashton Memorial. Scene of some very messy celebrating on the night of our last exam. I also wrote a musical about it for my 3rd year project. You are bringing back some great memories Luc. Can’t believe you’ve walked to Lancaster – the long way round! Awesome! Donna xxx
