the red glare on Skiddaw woke the burghers of Carlisle

Skiddaw - just checking
Skiddaw - just checking

Now and again as The Dog and I walk our walk, Skiddaw peeks over the hills to the south-ish. He may be just checking to see if Scotland is back yet (see our previous post – it is by the way), or he might be just keeping an eye on things. We’ve not had a Spanish Armada in a bit – although it has been said that they are pinching our fish. Still I’m sure he remembers the good old days with fondness. Just in case he’s worrying about it – I’m sure that both Thomas Macaulay and he’ll be pleased to know that The Dog and I are keeping an eye out. So the Spanish better not try anything.
