Grassmere is a lovely lake district village which is famous for it's association with the poet William Wordsworth and it is where he is buried. Everyone raised in UK will have had Wordsworth's poem
"Daffodils" drummed into them. For the benefit of our American and Antipodean fellow tourists who might not have had this enlightening experience Fearless Leader recited the 1st verse so that they were not too bewildered by the significance of this modest grave.
We were in distance covering mode again and burning up the motorway to Glasgow

On to Glasgow then where we had the usual introductory drive around the city on arrival. Glasgow is or was a big industrial city and I think that my thick head cold probably stopped me appreciating it.
