A Refreshing Weekend

We headed off on our travels on Friday lunch time to Kendal our usual hideaway in the Lake district, we weren't even fased by the report of severe weather that we heard on the radio. Well what we figured was that even if we can get there lets not worry about being stuck there and having to spend a few more days.

The weekend was just amazing, relaxing and tranquil and just what I was needing to recharge my batteries.


We stayed at our usual B&B and
Chris & janice are just the perfect
hosts and it is like a home from home
stay I managed to get a snap shot
view from our room.


(What a perfect view to wake up to)


On Saturday morning we had a full English breakfast then headed up to Croppers Papermill, I need to do this a couple of times a year to allow me to stock up on my basic card supply and this time was no different to others as I came away with the car fit to burst and several sighs from my ever patient husband, to be honest he's a sweetheart as he takes me to the Lakes for the sole pupose of me restocking my card.

After the Mill we headed to Windermere for a little browse around then back to Kendal to finish our day.

Then back to our B&B where Chris caught up on some of his work and I fell asleep for a whole 2 hours as I was exhausted, I awoke pain free again and ready for more action out on the town.

Our evening meal was at the Mumbai a wonderful Indian Restaurant where we ate till we were stuffed and couldn't face another thing.
We strolled back to the local public house (The Sawyers) a few drinks later and we were ready for our beds.


The Journey Home

I was determined to take some scenery shots on the way home just so that I could show you the beautiful scenery, I think you will agree it is rather breath taking.




Then there was this shot which I just had to have as

I loved the tree (sad I know)

All in All the perfect weekend break/
