Just to let u know yesterday’s day trip to the Lake District with Howard was everything we expected and more. We did have a very enjoyable time.
It was interesting to view the Kilburn white horse from afar.
Swinton estate was so “Downton Abbeyesque”. We had sandwiches & tea in the Drawing room. Wish we had more time to explore the gardens.
We did not have time to visit Beatrix Potter’s High Top nor Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage, but the Beatrix Potter museum was informative.
The short cruise on Lake Windermere was fun even though it rained half way through the cruise.
We had a great time with Howard – he shared many snippets of information along the way. Yesterday’s trip was a great sampler of the Lake District.
