P5188477.JPGP5188478.JPGP5188479.JPGP5188480.JPGI've entitled this entry Pinocchio because it is actually relevant to the events of today. We drove over to see Pinocchio at the Lowry Theatre (Manchester), this being some kind of new 'realisation' (or whatever) by Michael Rosen. It was okay. Afterwards, we had a table booked at Pizza Express, so that's were we went.

Ephemeral art
IMG_20140524_114857.jpg R****** created this on the patio. I'm not sure what it is. Best ask R******. I seem to recall that the heavens opened up a couple of hours after this picture was taken, which kind of destroyed R******'s creation.

After lunch at the Lakeside Motor Museum . . . during which . . . M****** remembered that we had forgotten our all-important Grizedale walk leaflet but here's when modern technology comes into play. I find all this stuff amazing - that I was able to use my smartphone to download the map in question from the Forestry Commission web-site and then also (for an encore) download Adobe Acrobat in order to view said map. All done within 10 minutes and the whole lack-of-map problem was solved. Anyway, that aside . . . after lunch we headed for the car park at Blind Lane and did the 4 mile 'white trail' around High Bowkerstead and all was good. We had a bit of a wildlife spotting frenzy today, starting off with this massive tawny owl (we think) swooping past our car and then various butterflies, bugs, caterpillars and unusual looking birds. Oh, and then there were the sculptures, of course, this being Grizedale Forest. The upside-boat thing was new to us.
