There are lunchwagons along roadsides here. And windsocks - haven't figured that out yet, but I imagine the winds can be viscious. Speed cameras are frequent. Surveillance cameras are everywhere - in shops, on the street, as well as highway. Remember how they were able to trace the London bombers so quickly? This is how they did it.
At one point, we saw sheep grazing in the median strip. In another field, the sheep were all running toward the barn. Seemed odd, until I saw the sheepdog working them. It was a lovely sight.
Carlisle Castle was impressive. Solid stone walls several feet thick. Mary Queen of Scots came here seeking refuge, and was imprisoned. www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/nav.13665
