This is one of the gates we were looking over this weekend.
I love the gate posts!



We were up in the Lakes again, this time for Steve's birthday.
The dogs came too.



And, amongst other things, we saw some lovely Galloways.



We drove down to Windermere early one morning for a gentle stroll along the shore. Gentle for Jilly, and a chance to get the pups into some water.
Out of the mists came huskies pulling bicycles. It was very surreal, especially as the bikes had lights on, as did the riders on their helmets.
All five of us stood back in amazement

Now that is a cracking idea .... when we are all out and about doing our individual things be it hunting, shooting, fishing, riding, walking, foraging, exercising the dogs, even working, etc. why not take a photo over a gate showing the view, feature, building, activity, etc. and post it here.

Great idea.

Why not start a new thread with views of whats over the gate, and make it a sticky so it doesn't get lost.

You read my mind - I was thinking that when I posted, was going to PM Kaz later.
Even thought we might get an Over the Gate calendar ? Then again, we might miss some cracking photo's if we put restrictions on the calendar pics.

Mo, Thank you, I haven't seen gate posts like that since I was a lad, a farm up the road from where we lived had them, you had to slide them open as you wanted to pass through, the trick was remembering which way they slid as only one "post" was cut through, the other side had matching recesses cut into it.

Most of the ones we saw weren't being used properly, so it was nice to come across this one.
Here's another pic I took of it.

Missed this on my last read through.

I think you're right, sod.
The lady had a bucket which I thought (aloud unfortunately) might be to collect Husky poo, Steve countered that they were unlikely to poo at the speed they were going and it was probably food

I thought of taking one over our gate but at present all you can see is dug up grass, a scattering of pampas and a varied collections of twigs, branches and small logs - the pups have been playing

Over the gate .........to a Danish church, with storm clouds above.

The tower to the side of the church, is the bell tower, in days of old it was rang manually twice a day, today its rung electrically.
