Lake District, England

 

Today, we departed pour lodgings at Carlisle and then proceeded to drive S.W.to track the southern side of Bassenthwaite Lake to Keswick and then continued south past Ambleside to Windermere and Lake Windermere stopping for lunch at a lakeside restaurant at Newby Bridge.

Next we moved on to the town of Kendal on banks of the River Kent where we enjoyed a short walk around the town and purchased some Kendal Mint Cake.

Next, we headed east to the town of Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales, passing through some stunning scenery en-route. Due to a concentration of motor cyclists at Hawes we were unable to stop there so continued south through the Dales scenery to our lodgings near Skipton.

This evening we enjoyed a Mexican meal at a restaurant set in a somewhat incongruous remote location overlooking the Ribble Valley.
