Heading to the Lake District for a week of chilling, walking and re-grouping after a fairly stressful few months. Unfortunately I was the rear vehicle in stationary traffic which the next car somehow failed to see. Car was written off, and some of the luggage damaged, including all bar one of my filters and possibly my flash gun. Nobody was seriously hurt, although there were some stiff joints the next morning! we eventually managed to locate hire car and managed to get to our cottage at around 11pm. Not quite the start planned...

I joined my sister and her family for our traditional Easter picnic at Kirkham Priory. It is such a beautiful setting - at the base of a small valley, just above the river; opposite the valley side is wooded, with the York - Scarborough railway line passing through. We had fun at the picnic, rolling (or hurling) eggs that Catherine and Co. had decorated, the children (young and somewhat older) played a game of Sardines, and we ended with an easter egg hunt. The rain held off long enough for us to have a good time.
