Car park, Ravenglass village

Although it doesn't feel like it, Ravenglass is still part of the Lake District, but unlike most other places, it has more parking spaces than it's ever likely to need. There is a large car park in the centre of the village and of course the car park next to the La'al Ratty.

Parking is NOT free anymore !!

Despite the decent weather I didn't have time for a longer walk today, but I did manage to get out for a short walk before going home from work. I know it may not seem like it but Ravenglass is actually in the Lake District and even with the obvious absence of Lakeland fells, this is still a lovely spot for a walk.

Off the beach now and on the path to Walls Castle.

Walls Castle - Roman Bath House.

 

It looks like the guy with the lawnmower has gone on strike.

 

Not long before taking this picture I stepped out of the way for to let a tractor pass by. And just before reaching me it had a blow out, and believe me, if you're standing near one of those tires when it goes bang, you really do come close to jumping out of your skin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's something you don't see every day, , , , well I don't anyway.

I don't see this very often either.

and as for this. It has to be the first time ever.

It may have been lovely and sunny where I was, but Black Combe was still hanging onto the cloud.

Ravenglass main street.

And how could anyone come to Ravenglass and not take a look at the trains.
