12Sep1864, A Lovely Ride

HOLKER, September 12th, 1864.
F. and I, Lou and Eddy, had a lovely ride "round by Bigland," whence the view over the Lake mountains was beautiful, in the soft light, with purple shadows. Switzerland has not a bit spoilt these hills for me ; they stand majestically on the horizon, instead of rising up sheer above one, as abroad ; and perhaps this makes one invest them with height and dignity. I rode Snap of happy Rotten Row memory. We got upon the sands at Roudsea, and had blissful gallops.
