Ullswater and more

We have just come back from our camping trip at Ullswater, wow what an absolutely stunning little corner of the country.

Just before we left I made this card for Trish who is one of the most amazing women I have had the pleasure to meet and call a friend. Trish has recently been through some health issues and the whole class wanted to let her know we are all thinking of her and wishing her well.

These next photos are from our camping trip.

This was half way up the fells around Ullswater, we took 6 hours to do a 4 hour walk - go figure ! Neil has a new nickname for me as I was in charge of the map reading - I have now been dubbed Prat Nav ! I did take 'scenic route' to a new extreme but the views were so worth it ( well almost lol)

The only thing with the countryside is all the traffic jams and road rage ! Sorry for the haziness of the photo it was taken through the windscreen of the car, it took a good 10 minutes for the farmer to round up his herd and clear them into the field but they were so funny to watch.

Shopping in Kendal.

A round of golf ( albeit mini golf) at Ambleside

Huge queues at the cinema to see Captain America, we also saw the final Harry Potter earlier in the week.

Home for the week - we had the fells behind us and Ullswater below us, we stayed at a fantastic site called the Quiet site - hidden among trees,  which I have no reservations about recommending, one of the best sites I have ever seen with the cutest little Inn ever !

And one of the necessary elements of all holidays, daily treats by way of calorie laden yumminess, sometimes real dairy ice-cream, sometimes rich buttery fudge, sometimes licky sticky candy floss and on occasion all of the above !

Love and Lake District loveliness

  3. Tracey where did you get the black and white photo of the boy in that card? I noticed you have made the same previously in your last entry. This card is gorgeous. Did you use the seam binding ribbon at the bottom of the card. Would love to know the answers.

    What a lovely trip to go and see those countryside and what a nice view.
