out and about...a trip to cragside

dear radio times and national trust, thanks ever so for the voucher to get into cragside for free yesterday. me and my friend had a lovely day out in the fresh air with the smell of autumn crowding our nostrils and the woods all atmospheric and slightly misty. the flask of tea served in enamel cups (like camping) with shortbread biscuits to share was delicious (thanks to me for that bit).










the house had its own sauna, lit with the first non-commerical use of light bulbs in the world, designed by joseph swan...here's the reflection on the floor

the plunge pool


i couldn't use the flash in the house so the photos aren't the best ever.
