GLW2106 : In
Search of Animals!
16th February 2021
was the third of our our brief outings trying to find
interesting and suitable things to photo for the BOOTboys'
competition. The first two, around Oxenholme then
the north end of Kendal hadn't produced enough suitable
entries so we decided to take advantage of a reasonable
day to walk up the fields on the left bank of the River
Kent from Burneside.
exhausted after a mile and half's exertion we oldies
had to stop to recover our strength. Fortunately
we had a flask and emergency rations for such a contingency.
That is the case for the defence, Mr Gove.
we crossed the Cowan Head golf course, private for the
residents of the converted mill and much expanded from
the three holes that I remember to at least 17. Or
at least one tee had the number 17 on it.
the weir look much more interesting from this side of
the Hagg Foot foot bridge we crossed and returned along
the footpath through Bowston and back to Burneside.
Although much of this path is alongside the road,
it is raised up and is surprisingly pleasant, at least
when (as per today) there is not much traffic.
target subjects were animals though they could be real,
articifical or part of signs or plaques. Strangely,
for open countryside, it was the real animals that were
particularly scarce. I did manage to find a few
non-real objects albeit that in the end my winners
were from Oxenholme. Not that that mattered, it
was a pleasant stroll along a stretch of the river that
we have seldom walked.
