Lakes Holiday 2013: Day 1 and 2

Hello and welcome,

Yes I’m blogging with photos again and yes it’s a bit of a series, just chill and enjoy.

So for our family holiday this year we went to the lakes and we couldn’t have chosen a better time to go, we had picture perfect weather each day!

We kicked off day one by driving to the lakes via Hawes; the comically named village and home of wensleydale cheese. Hawes is a great place visit and is popular with bikers, cyclists, walkers, and travelling people in general. We had a meal in the excellent White Hart (see my review here)

The drive up and across was stunning, and we met cyclists and most alarming a traveller with 3 very unruly horses. The horses we so unruly we had to stop while he stopped to control them – did slightly fear the car was going to jumped on by the horse at one point.

So we arrived and promptly got the little one off to bed and cracked open a beer.

Day 2 Brookhole, lunch at Ambelside then a visit to Townend.

We woke up to lovely sunshine on our caravan for the week and me and Bobbie had a little mess about on the veranda. We then got sorted and headed for Brookhole, it has the best aventure playground and because we arrived so early we had the whole thing to ourselves!

and then on to our first National Trust property ‘Townend’. This was a very old building with a stunning collection of old books, interesting clocks and very old furniture

And thus ended day 2. As always the photos were taken by my trusty D3000 using 18-55mm and 55mm-200mm Nikon lens. All photos taken in Raw format.
