Visit to the 'Lovely Lakes'

Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is good in blog land.

I wanted to say hi and to Blog about my recent trip to the Lakes.

I went with a group of friends and stayed in beautiful Hawkshead in a house with great a view of the Lake which we woke up to every morning - bliss. It was only my second trip to the Lakes and I have completely fallen in love with it.
What better way to spend a week, we walked (allot) once loosing my walking shoe in some rather deep sticky mud, we ate pub lunches, drank hot chocolate (and wine) and mooched around lots of lovely gift shops.
We visited "The drunken duck" where my hot chocolate was accompanied with a ducky shortbread (i'm so easily pleased but It was a really nice touch)  And then we walked/climbed a bit more up "the old man of Coniston", well the girls went halfway but the boys went almost to the top all with my friends daughter Poppy in a walking backpack~ She seemed to love it!

It was a fabulous week and I cant wait to visit the 'lovely lakes' again sometime soon.
Having a week to recharge the batteries really helped and Im back at BB HQ ready and rearing to 
go again.
