The Lake District

This Saturday we decided to do a bit of exploring near Durham.  The county next to us is called “Cumbria”.  In County Cumbria headed east towards the Irish Sea there is a National Park area called “Lake District”.  Our friends in Durham had all told us that we must see this area.

It was cool day mostly sunny with wind and high clouds so we headed over.  What we saw there took our breath away.

Spent the day in the park taking  as many photos as we could.

Each time we rounded a corner we saw a scene more lovely than the last.

We finished our day at 4,500 year old Castlerigg Stone Circle.  It is a bit like Stonehenge but closer to us.

The UK has some beautiful parks.  It was a great little Saturday adventure.

  1. We loved the Lake District when we went there in 1987. Andrew climbed every rock he could find. Windermere and Hawkshead stand out in our memories. We are glad you all got to go.
