Another Treat, This Time for Charlotte Mason Fans

February 15, 2006 @ 4:55 am | Filed under:

The Bookworm and her family are touring the Lake District, including a visit to Ambleside.

Tevye was a little alarmed when I directed him down a narrow road signed ‘Ambleside via “The Struggle” ‘, but to his relief we we were travelling in the right direction and got the cruise downhill, not the struggle uphill. Unlike the last time I visited I had remembered my camera, so I strolled up the drive of Scale How, Charlotte Mason’s old House of Education (now known as St.Martin’s College) to take a picture. With my mind on finding a good spot for photography I forgot to keep an eye on my feet, tripped and fell headlong, nearly giving Tevye heart failure. Fortunately there was no real damage done apart from bruised and scraped knees.

So glad to hear everything is OK! Click the link for the rest of her adventure, plus a picture of Scale How. And in this post, she visits Charlotte’s grave.
