Rainy Days On The Great Lakes

So we went camping a few weekends back for Stacey's birthday, we being who I refer to as the Sheffield gang. We went all the way up to the Lake District which for those of you who don't know, is not far from the boarder to Scotland. Let me tell ya it was one hell of a drive! You don't realise what a bad position your car seat is in until you've driven for three and a half hours straight! 

All was well though when we arrived. We managed to get our tent up pretty quickly with everyone's help. We all then headed into the nearest town where we had a nice pub meal and saw some live bluegrass. It's such a lovely place, we were in Coniston I think it was. It was very much like being in Iceland or Greenland or somewhere similar, what with all the green open space and towering mountains in the distance. 

This is us in the morning having quite a varied breakfast. Ben made me and him scrambled egg on toast and Alex and Neil had french toast with berries. No half measures here!

Luckily we were there just in time to catch a country fair nearby. I've never seen so many dogs in one place! So many lurchers and foxhounds and tweed! It was by this lovely lake too which was absolutely gorgeous.

Later that day we went kayaking! We each were in a two person kayak on this massive lake. I was pretty scared at first but it was awesome when we got going.

And after all that we then had the massive drive back!
