As we recently went on a trip to the Lake District, I thought it would be perfect timing to write up a post about it considering this is technically my only summer holiday of the year.
The Lake District is an incredibly beautiful part of the country, containing plenty of natural beauty which makes it perfect for nature lovers. However, as pretty as it is, it is far too rural for my liking so I don’t think I could live there. There’s too much travelling to get anywhere and you’re miles from everywhere!
As much as I enjoy going to visit, I don’t think I could ever live there which is ironic considering I lived a good chunk of my life in rural Zumerset (I’m writing it like that as that would be my impression of putting on a broad Wurzels like Somerset accent). These days I enjoy having local amenities within walking distance, although I do love a good walk in the countryside.
While we were there, we took the opportunity to go rowing, power boating, walking and watching the sunset over the mountains and grab a bite to eat out a few times with Greg’s family. It was a nice relaxing break from work too.
We took the boats out at Lake Windermere, where you can pay to take a boat out for so long. It was nice and relaxing just going up and down the lake and taking in the surrounding scenic views. And if you also fancy watching the sunset over the mountains too, you can just park in one of the myriad of car parks on offer. Although I do believe you have to pay for most of them but there are plenty of National Trust car parks, so if you’re a member you can park for free.
There’s not a lot else I can say about it really, apart from include some of my photographs to show just how beautiful it can be on a sunny, summer’s day! Unfortunately most of these have only been taken off my phone as I forgot to bring my dSLR 🙁 (Also, my sunglasses do look rather wonky on my face!)
