I can’t tell you how nice it was to finally sleep in my own bed!
We spent this Sunday afternoon in the Lake District. For those who don’t know, the Lake District is the largest national park in England and has loads of lakes and mountains. It’s beautiful.
At noon we drove to the Pheasant Inn, an old traditional restaurant, where we ate Sunday lunch before heading down to Keswick. We drove over the tops of the mountains to get the best views of some of the lakes. The Lake District is so historic and has some of the most beautiful landscapes in England.
After strolling around the small shops and boutiques in Keswick, we headed down to the lake. The weather was absolutely gorgeous all day, which is totally unheard of in Britain! It was hot enough for shorts and a vest, very rare!!
Later on in the afternoon, we got on an old steam boat and rode it down Windermere to the next town. Seeing as the sun was shining, many people were out on the lake shores, sailing their boats and enjoying the impressive British summer weather.
It was so lovely to finally be back in my home county, Cumbria. We spent the rest of the evening visiting family and friends.
We have a few more days left in England to make the most of before we start our backpacking trip on Thursday.
