Last Saturday, my dad and I made an unexpected trip to Cumbria to pick up an ailing Mark. He has suspected glandular fever. According to our family GP, he is presenting with text book symptoms.What that means for Mark is that he is more ill than he has ever really been before; not life threateningly ill (thank goodness), but certainly 'life' stoppingly ill, which, for an active chap, is proving a real strain!
So, after a week in which his only trips out of the house have been to the doctor and the hospital (blood test), an outing today was a must!
Foremark Reservoir is only 15 minutes down the road and we were lucky enough to find a front row car parking spot overlooking the water. Mark was able to wind down the windows and sit in comfort watching the yachts racing, while I hopped out to snap a few photos.
A brief stop at the local marina for a hot chocolate rounded off a much needed change of scenery.
