As you may know we had a plan to set off early to our caravan, unfortunately hubby had an adverse reaction to some medication so we set off a little later than intended with me driving! (Hubby does enjoy being at the wheel usually)
By the time we had done some shopping for food on the way he was feeling much better.
On Friday we decided to take a trip to find where we are going in November (Oh yes there will be photos but I will tell you exactly where nearer the time!)
We stopped off at Castlerigg Stone Circle, a place we have often intended visiting!
It is quite close to Keswick but we didn't go into Keswick at all on this occasion!
From here we drove through the Vale of St John, past some beautiful scenery.
We stopped here for a picnic - although we didn't get out of the car for long as it was a bit chilly.
We then drove on to Grasmere
The Garden Centre doesn't have great selection of plants but is is a lovely place to buy gifts…..and is in a beautiful setting
I think you have seen this area before but with Summer in full swing!
Our final stop was here…for some kitchen shopping and…..
….coffee, tea, scone and cake and yes the scone was that big and I gave some to hubby
Of course I had to have this or I couldn't have joined Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T stands for Tuesday….
so Thank You Elizabeth for this really great opportunity to share!
Thanks for looking, Chris
