The Lake District in England

London after dinner, sleep and breakfast on a flight from San Francisco we dropped a big bag of clothes at our hotel and hopped a train to the Lake District – spending the first night in Kendal and then Bowness On Windermere.

The train ride was rich with rolling bright green lush hills dotted by woolly white sheep and hearty cows – all framed by miles upon miles of stone walls.  It was as if Monet painted our views.

A cold cloudy day was the perfect backdrop for a boat ride to the town of Ambleside famous for being the home of Beatrix Potter – this year her 150th birthday.
