When we went on our ( shopping/touristy not walker/rambley) tour of the Lakes at the weekend, we first went to Ambleside to a garden centre where I bought a new blue pot for the delphs. It was half price with an extra 15% off. Next stop was Windermere for a wander. We parked out of town for free. We found a sweet little sewing shop and I spent a whopping £2.10 on some rik-rak edging. We sampled some award winning pies before continuing our journey home via Grange over Sands. It's very steeply hilly! We parked out of town for free and walked down into the town and onto the prom. This is prime salt marsh lamb land. The Bay itself is treacherous. You can only walk across it with a guide appointed by the Queen. That's true!
Next was round the bay to Arnside. We had fish n chips ( sans chips ) from the yes you guessed it award winning chippy ( quite famous round these parts ) - although the batter was a bit greasy, we ambled up and down the prom and watched the world go by for a bit. It was a bit breezy!
Ok ok that was an OUTRAGEOUS LIE. We watched the power kite surfer dude for a bit. He was really zipping through the waves.
Then we meandered home! It was a really relaxing nice day out!
Now I'm off to clean the budgie out. Not a euphemism. Barry is going to stay with his other school mummy whilst I'm away! I'll miss him a lot! It'll be very quiet! I'll share our day out on Tuesday to Yorkshire, tomorrow!
Lots of love from
