Running through the English countryside, installment 2

Filed in Blog, United Kingdom by on March 4, 2014 2 Comments

I decided to do another photo blog of one of my runs because it’s truly been the best way to see the area.  This time I went west toward the Lune Estuary (and the ocean, although I didn’t make it there).  It’s actually quite fascinating how different the landscape is on the east and west sides of campus; this side, the east, is relatively flat as it gently slopes to the ocean, while the other side is dramatically hilly.  If I had to summarize this run in three bullet points, I’d say:

  • Spring is here!
  • Mud is also here!
  • Lots of animals stared at me!

For photographic evidence of all of these claims, scroll down.

I know I’m getting close to home when I see this view of Bailrigg House and the campus lawns
