Beatrix Potter and the Lake District part 2


On the "Goat Tour" we visited Tarn Hows, one of the area’s best-loved beauty spots for views of the lake against a backcloth of mountain peaks.

Then we drove on to Lake Windermere for a boat ride to Ambleside where we were picked up and returned to our starting point. It was the best "tour" we went on and it was filled with so much fun and laughter.








My new camera started to "posterize" my pictures which I didn't realize until I got home.

    1. It was really lovely there. Italy for one semester at the Univ. of Rome for art history and Germany for 1.5 years. First husband was German.

  3. We did a three day Lake District walk in September (from Windemere to Grasmere to Coniston and back to Windemere) and loved it. The weather on the second day (our longest at 14 miles) was rather dicey, but the Lake District is spectacular so we didn't mind. Fun to read about other's adventures in the area. Did you get to Grasmere? The gingerbread was wonderful!

    1. Hi Sheila,
      YES!! As a matter of fact I included the gingerbread sign in an upcoming posts on signs I saw during the trip. My fave was also from Grasmere across the road from the Gingerbread place - a nursery with "Crow" warnings. Too funny. You'll see them soon.
