Lake District

We have just got back from a weekend away at the Lake District. It was amazing and we crammed a lot in. The first thing we did was take Lily to see the World of Beatrix Potter. She had so much fun. Here she is with some of the haracters out of the books, Peter Rabbit, Mr MacGregor, Mrs Tiggywinkle...

We also went on a boat trip and we went to an animal conservation park wich was brill.

After the Animal Park, we went to visit Hill Top which is the house where Beatrix Potter lived and wrote her stories. The house is as it was when she lived there with all the furniture set in palce and ornaments and toys etc... Very special place. Here's one of Lils standing outside the front door of Hill Top.

Lovely pics Hazel. I love the Lake District and would love to go back. We went for a few days about 5 years ago and crammed loads in but didn't get everywhere we wanted. There was so much to do.
