We enjoyed some fabulous walks in the Lake District on holiday last week. Beautiful views, great weather (most of the time) and lots of fresh air!
On our first day we visited the National Trust owned Aira Force beside Ullswater. There's an easy walk up to this beautiful waterfall.
As we walked back to the car park, the kids spotted this felled tree. Of course, kids being kids, it was like a magnet to them and it absolutely had to be walked along!
I've never come across anything like this before. There were so many coins really firmly jammed in that I assumed it had been done as an art project, but later in the week on another walk, we came across a fallen tree with a few coins jammed into its trunk.
Maybe this happens a lot? Do people go for walks with a handful of change and a hammer? Can anyone shed any light on it?
Whatever the reason, it is well worth the walk to see it!
Whilst we were there I took a 'day off' from our holiday to visit the British Crafts Trade Fair in Harrogate. It is the best trade fair by far for shops like mine. Everything is handmade and everything is British, which is what Starfish Studio is all about :)
