What to do when it rains in the Lake District

We've just got back from a two and a half-day jaunt to the Lake District.

Revisiting places we went to on our honeymoon, sampling the tea and scones (with cream and jam, of course!), walking down stone-wall sided lanes, with sheep bleating in the fields, drying our feet and rain-soaked trousers in the local pub. It was all we expected, and we packed it in, and it was lovely.

This picture was taken in the window of our room at Bank Ground farm, the farm that inspired Holly Howe in Swallows and Amazons.

Avast ye maties with lashings of ginger beer....

more anon,
