When they all arrived on Sunday afternoon we set off to Morecambe for a walk along the promenade! It was quite warm but dull but we were able to talk and catch up!
|There is an installation that shows and names the mountains you can see in the distance!|
We can see the other side of Warton Crag from our caravan
|I sneaked through a car park and laid in wait to get this photo of my usually reluctant subjects!!|
|You may remember me telling you about the 3 storey house we liked the look of - this would have been our view!|
|Walls are for walking along at the seaside aren't they?|
The next day we had a plan to visit Acorn Bank and then found that there were owls at the Rheged centre for the day - as it is only a slight detour we decided to call there for lunch and a little look at the owls and the fabulous print exhibition that was on(I had already been once, but definitely with a second visit)
My GD had her face painted by a very talented lady…..
…and we set off for Acorn Bank, which is a National Trust property near Penrith.
We had been before a couple of years ago in the early Spring when the woods are carpeted in snowdrops. This time there was a Halloween Trail that we enjoyed following.
I will try to let you wander along without words!
The end of the trail - we had to go inside to find the little girl's Teddy Bear
After a quick visit to the Tea Room (more another day!!)we set off in a different direction to visit the fairy walk and the mill.
|This door had little stairs inside!|
|This stream led to the water mill|
…and watched the moon rise on our way back down the motorway.
I'll be back with day 3 another time!
Thanks for looking, Chris
