Just a few more pictures from our day in the Lake District. I love the Lake District so much! I would love to live there, but first we would have to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, or probably several rainbows if we were going to be able to afford a property in the Lake District! We will satisfy ourselves with visiting it whenever we can and be grateful that we live fairly close to it. Two hours in the car and we are in the bottom of the Lake District, that's not too bad really.
A pretty holiday cottage in Near Sawrey. There are a lot of stone buildings in the Lake District and I think they are so delightful.
Taken near our picnic spot at Coniston Water
The girls paddling in Coniston Water (in wellies, it was much too cold for bare feet!)
This pair of swans basically frog-marched us back to our car. They weren't remotely aggressive (they were probably just hoping we would feed them), but swans are big birds and they were quite intimidating. Emma was not at all impressed!
