Ready to play?
Since everyone’s staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip. My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.
Identify the location of the picture below. Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog).
Correct answer receives a point. If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month. Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card). In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .
Name That Location:
Hint: This beautiful area is known for its association with William Wordsworth (who settled near this site in 1799) and Beatrix Potter who lived at nearby Hill Top Farm. She is credited with preserving much of the property comprising the national park which bears the same name as this region. Luminaries such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Sir Walter Scott, & John Constable favored the area. We had a lovely experience taking tea in this very spot, now known as Faeryland Tea & Coffee Garden due to the ancient history and magical ambience of the place. Name the region & country.
~Yesterday’s photo was of the Forum in Rome. Lisa Maliga, K. Nichols, & Sharon K. Connell recognized the location.~

I’m guessing that’s the Lake District in England. Another place that’s high on my bucket list. 🙂
Correct, Amy! This is Grasmere, one of the smaller lakes and my favorite. It just may have been my top spot in all of England.
This is Lake Grasmere, Lake District, Cumbria, England, UK. LOL Not sure how much of that location you wanted me to give, so here’s all of it. Wish I could have joined you for tea. Or for that matter, joined Wordsworth, Potter, Coleridge, Sir Walter Scott, or Constable. What fun that would have been. 🙂
Correct again, Sharon! Isn’t it a beautiful spot? I didn’t want to leave.
Correct, K! Congratulations.
Grasmere in the Lake District, UK. I can see how you’d like this place. Hope you stocked up on your favorite teas!
You are correct, Lisa! This might have been my favorite spot in England. They’ve spiffed up the boats a bit since I was there. I came home with a years supply of tea!
