Buddhist Temple at Conishead Priory 3/09/2017

Well, although the forecast for Sunday, September 3rd said rain, at least-when we met up at the Old Stone Trough for our regular Sunday Run – it was a cloudy but fine morning. So, we set off to meet more members at the coffee stop at Ireby Green Farm Café.

Now, would you believe it, ours – Irving and I – was the only car not to get out of one of the junctions on the way and we were stuck behind a very cautiously driven car and caravan and hence arrived well after the rest of the group though, fortunately, in time to meet up with them. After coffee – and far worse – we regrouped, Irving and I playing catch up, and 11 cars (8 MGs, and 4 others) continued towards the Lake District and on to the Buddhist Temple at Conishead Priory.

Just before our arrival the rain really did begin but, fortunately, most members went into the Temple for Meditation & Prayers. It is a stunning building with a beautiful interior and well worth a visit if you are in the area. As Irving & I had visited Conishead Priory on previous occasion, we decided to walk down through the woods to Morecambe Bay estuary. Although by this time it was very wet, on a good day, it is a lovely short walk and a perfect spot to have a picnic. On our return, we met up again with our now enlightened and relaxed friends!!

We then continued on to the Fisherman’s Arms Baycliffe, where we all had an excellent lunch together with lots of chatter and banter. Thanks to Neil and Janet for another interesting and fascinating outing, and Gail for this write up.
