Rutland Water

Rutland Water


In honor of ten years of being together, C. and I went away last weekend to England's smallest county, Rutland. Its largest liquid landmark is Rutland Water, a reservoir flooded over farmland in the 1970s, creating an expansive body of water perfect for watersports. On this slightly nippy November afternoon, the reservoir was thronged at one end with sailers, rowers, and windsurfers. It was still tranquil though, space enough for all of us.

Thank you! I know - it hardly seems like it can have been already.

Thank you! I think you'd like the place we stayed yourself.

Thank you! (I went to a cupcake bakery here in London the other day and thought of you.)

Happy anniversary!

I grew up in Leicestershire and we went to Rutland Water loads when I was a kid.

Thank you! It looks like it would be even better in warmer weather!

Completely unrelated...I think I know you from Smith back in the 1980s. I'm a member of the local SCA Barony as well as a founder of SSFFS. I wish I'd seen you at Kalamazoo, since I was there as part of DISTAFF. I'll be presenting on early Italian patchwork this May.

May I friend? I'm a bit melodramatic but otherwise harmless....:)

You knew me from Smith in the mid-90s anyways - since that's when I was there! We exchanged comments back in the spring, when K'zoo was still months off. It was when I was idly searching on the offchance of news of Meg, I think.

Of course you may friend.
