It is good to read about Ambleside where we started staying in 1968 when I gave my first talk at the conference. Pam Barnacle ran a superb B&B—and would take nothing, except presents for her children, for watching ours who were 5 and 1. Her quality was not followed by her immediate successor. All of the B&Bs we stayed in after she retired have either been sold or have stopped taking guests. In 1910, the Falcon matched B&B prices and offered a good lounge in which to read and write.
