After breakfast we had a boat ride on a steamer with an open deck, the cruise took approximately two hours, on England’s most beautiful lake Ullswater.  Jamie got some postcards to write.  We then went to the supermarket to buy the food for the week and get some snacks to eat at the cottage. In the afternoon the sun came out and it was lovely as we enjoyed a cream tea.

After a relaxing morning we went to the Brackenrigg Inn for a roast lunch.  We spent the rest of the day looking around the town of Keswick and shopping.  We went for a walk to Castlerigg stone circles.  It was a lovely sunny day.

Today we had a tour around our area of the Lake-District. We had an excursion to Coniston Water and went up the famous Kirkstone-Pass. We had a packed lunch and went for a cross-country walk.  We stopped and had an ice cream in Coniston and a cup of tea.  Darren thought the scenery was fantastic.

Today I had a fantastic day out on a steam railway. We departed in Ravenglass and after 45 minutes we arrived at Dalegarth. We had our packed lunch and after one hour we returned back to Ravenglass, the train was packed! We all sat in the open top carriage, Karen loved it!

After breakfast we made our way to Lowther Castle, a treasure in the Lake District. We toured the castle and walked round the beautiful gardens.  Darren really enjoyed reading about the history of the castle and the secret hidden gardens.  We looked around the gift shop and bought some gifts and souvenirs.  We all helped with the dinner preparation Jamie enjoyed making the trifle.

Hundreds of horses, shires and ponies were there. We then went to Penrith town and visited the George hotel where we had tea and coffee. We finished the day with fish and chips!
