|We left home at Silly-O'clock!|
The weather wasn't good, often threatening rain so we didn't get to do much walking. This is our 4th visit to The Lakes and there are still so many other interesting places to visit that we will go again.
|Walked up a hill over-looking Ulverstone. The water is Morecombe Bay|
|Saw the original Amazon in The Ruskin Museum in Coniston|
|And The Steam Gondola On Coniston Water - and below the mist or low cloud rolling over the fells|
The Dock Museum at Barrow-in Furness was brilliant ( and free) Loads of history of shipbuilding but I was more interested in the social history of the dock workers and owners. So no photos of ships just pics of house interiors.
|Not a good photo of kite surfers off the coast as I forgot to take my big camera that day|
|Here's Col having a close look!|
|We searched for Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggywinkle in the garden, but they were hiding!|
I could have spent ages here but they were running 1 hour tours so we would have had to have waited until after the last tour to have another look round.
If you've got children then Wray castle on the western shore of Lake Windermere is a wonderful place to visit. As far removed from the usual national Trust property as you could possibly get, it is full of surprises for children of all ages.See more here
|Wray Castle- A Victorian house built to look like a medieval castle|
It was a good test for the caravan. We've got a list of things we need to take with us next time and some things that we don't need to take. There are one or two small jobs to do - like adding some hooks and making sure the water pipe to the washbasin doesn't become un-connected again- turning all the towels in the cupboard below into a soggy heap!
The books I read while on holiday have been added to my Books Read 2015 page. I can really recommend Love and War in the WRNS by Vicki Unwin which is a book full of letters from a young girl who joined up at age 21 to her mother and father.
A warm welcome to Katia and Lee Ann and thank you to everyone for Mango Chutney comments.
Now I had better get some washing and caravan sorting done so that we can go away again later in the month!
