Lake district weekend

We had a busy day on our first full day in the Lakes. After a relatively slow start to the day getting ready, cooking and eating breakfast on the deck of the pod we set off walking. We walked from the camp site to the nearest town Ambleside. When we have been to the Lakes in the past we have usually stayed in a B&B in Ambleside and after visiting a view of the larger towns it has to be my favorite. It took a good hour and a half to get there (stopping occasionally to take photos of course).

Reflections in the river

After browsing around some of the shops, we had lunch in a little cafe. Refueled and ready to go further, we headed up through the wood to see the waterfalls above the town.

I’m linking this photo up for Macro Monday.

A little more browsing around the shops followed by a couple of drinks in a pub and then we headed out to dinner at a favorite restaurant of ours. There is a small bar upstairs from the restaurant with live music on Fridays and Saturdays so after dinner we headed up there to enjoy a few more drinks before getting a taxi back to the campsite. The band that night were Beggar Joe who we both really enjoyed (even though only half the band was their due to illness, they were still fantastic).
