to the Lakes District

Neil was somewhat sluggish this morning as, not only did he have a 'bit' of a hangover but also a really sore trough and a head cold (this means he will be really deaf for at least the next few days).
We got going, after a bit of net time and booking our rail travel for later in the month, and drove (via the motorway cos it was easier) to Keswick in the middle of the Lakes District. We eventually found the i place and booked 4 nights at what I hope will be a quiet out of the way place for Neil to sleep and get better. Then we wandered down the road to the Cumberland Pencil factory which is where they make Dewernt Pencils. Their museum was actually quite good with informative signs etc. I had to buy a few pencils.
from there we went via our accom to Ambleside to wander the streets for a while before coming back via a tiny town, with an organic restaurant where we had a light dinner which was great and then heading back to our accom for an early night.
