Coniston Old Man


Food, life, and everything’s fine. 

No, Bowness-On-Windermere is not the pits of the Earth.  Not remotely.

I’m enjoying it.

Today, after realising the bus fares in this area – as with many other things – are extortionate, we bought ourselves Rambler tickets.  These provide 4 days of unlimited bus travel.

We took ourselves to Coniston and then walked the paths of the mountain, Coniston Old Man.  This was a true spectacle – it looked like a whole range of mountains at the heart of one.  It was immense.  The vast size of it all almost hurt the eyes to look at, being impossible to squeeze into the entirety of one’s vision, which almost bent under the weight of it all.  There was also a magnificent intermittence of waterfalls, but to actually see the clouds meet the Earth as they scudded along it, well that was something else and you really all need to see that.



After a visit to our very own Fish and Chip shop for tonite’s tea, we then went on to the local wine merchants.  Flash took his cock out and wee-ed down the sloping pavement in the middle of town, so he was lucky that later on when the police cautioned him it was merely for spilling some lager in a shop doorway…

Back in our room, things took a turn for the worse, as Flash and Raquel fell out over absolutely nothing.  Flash’s attitude is often strange these days, and tonight, I felt that when they ‘fell out’ that he took a perverse delight in it all and seemed to relish and enjoy the tension.

They’re still rowing with each other.

I bet they’ll make up tomorrow and fuck each other.
