Areet.  I'm a northern fella, grounded in the UK's Lake District. I love the outdoors, photography, and local history. This blog will undoubtedly carry a mix of the above topics and will essentially be an online diary. Welcome to my mind. Mwahahaha. Anyways, here's a photo of my best friend, Poppy, while out on one of our walks in the local countryside. ^Areet is local dialect for Hello.
