We started out at the Rheged centre for a quick look around, I went and had a look at the quilt exhibition and we had a coffee.
From there we headed to Penrith (and a quick hop in to Penrith Crafts)and walked down the High Street
We had never noticed this Spanish restaurant down one of the side streets before - in the window was a little village scene
The flowers outside the information centre were beautiful.
Then it was off to Acorn bank to see the daffodils…and these cuties…
..and decided it was time for a bite to eat before our walk.
Hubby doing his w-a-i-t look!!
Mine is the very unhealthy looking(delicious) Sausage roll and hubby had his favourite - Tuna and mayo sandwich. As you can see we had water to drink and this is a perfect time to to tell you that there is an open invitation over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog today - as long as you share something drink related!

The orchard looked wonderful.
We arrived at Appleby station early expecting huge crowds!
At last this wonderful steam engine arrived….
…and by this time there was quite a crowd.
Inside the carriages there was a real treat for the folk on board but at £300 a ticket not for the likes of us!!
Then after a 20 minute stop to collect water they were off!
I was going to show you the two places I teased you with last week but I'll save them for a rainy day!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
