The great advantage of having visitors to stay is being able to show them the beauties of the Lake District. My visitors arrived during a week of exceptionally good weather. Of course we did do some sun-bathing but we also explored the area.
Every day we had a picnic and this year they were not eaten in the car! On one day we went on the Carlisle/Settle Railway as far as Skipton. Another day we explored the coast, Silloth and Allenby, with the obligatory ice-cream. To avoid the seasonal crowds we went up the Eden Valley to visit such places as Armathwaite, Kirk Oswald, Lazonby and Langwathby.
It’s now back to routine, catching up on gardening, shopping and cooking.
Carol, out and about
