Enjoy the music of Sweet People and Barcarolle..and as I said before, knowing now how to give you a taster only…you can now only listen to about 3/4 of the track…sorry!

This mosaic has got different pictures and I don’t want to say too much. In short…you can see pictures from Loweswater Lake…I’ve blogged about Cockermouth and Mockerkin before and if you read my entries about it, you will also know where Loweswater is…in the Lake District. You can see a few pictures about Hawkshead, where Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top farm is, I have done an entry about her two days ago, read and see more images on this link. On this link you will also find the Cockermouth/Mockerkin-links….https://chessaleeinlondon.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/beatrix-potters-hill-top-farm/ Then you can see pictures that I took at Hadrian’s Wall and at Whitehaven. I’ve got some links for you to follow and to read about. The best to view this mosaic, is to click on it and you will see a lovely large picture.

Whitehaven….has many links with the USA, but perhaps the most famous link of all is that of John Paul Jones. Jones was born in Scotland, but raised in Whitehaven and trained as a seaman. These skills were transferred to the American military as Jones became the founding father of the US Navy. In an amazing turn of events, Jones, and his fleet, attacked Whitehaven during the American war of Independence, in 1777.
