Westmorland Hotel Waterfall

Westmorland Hotel Waterfall

We set off early this morning for Scotland, this is the second time I have travelled up by car and also stopped at the Westmoorland Hotel, just of the M6 motorway at Tebay in the Lake District. The full English buffet breakfast was delicious and good value for money. I would certainly recommend this when traveling up north. We didn’t stay the night at the hotel just enjoyed the breakfast. The photo below shows the view out of the window of the restaurant.

Buddhist Temple, Scotland

Buddhist Temple, Scotland

Kagyu Samye Ling is a very interesting Buddhist Community and Retreat about 12 miles north of Lockerbie across the boarders of Scotland. The Temple was really interesting both architecturally and spiritually. I was quite surprised to find this centre which is in the middle of the lowland countryside of Scotland. It was extremely peaceful and had a warm friendly atmosphere. The photograph is of the main temple but the other statues and monuments around the centre were also very interesting.

Tonight we were driving past Jodrell Bank Observatory near Goostrey in Cheshire. The colours in the sky were wonderful and constantly changing through the sun set. I decided to stop and get some photos of the two telescopes with the sun going down in the background.

Virgin Train Engine leaving Crewe Station

Virgin Train Engine leaving Crewe Station

This morning I took the train from Wilmslow to Crewe to visit my grandparents again. I am only staying one night this time but whilst sat on the train I was admiring the weather and wishing I could be outside taking photos, so I thought I might as well get my camera out and see what comes along. I took a few countryside landscapes but I thought I would share this photo of a Virgin train engine leaving Crewe station. Its a little boring but I thought it was a good enough image seeing as I took it from a moving vehicle.
