Sunday, July 7

The Lakes...why not.

Sunday was a scorcher so we packed a picnic and headed over to the Lake District. Taking just 2 hours to get there the tranquil Lake Ulswater was the perfect place to have a break and our picnic.


We then continued to Windermere which was much busier. After an ice cream we head off home via the Yorkshire Dales.


On our arrival home we were greeted by a major incident right outside our house. It would seem whilst we were out having fun a car had crashed into the telegraph pole opposite our house. The post had been cracked and had to be replaced. The driver was unharmed. There was no electricity for a few hours so we had a BBQ of a couple of steaks and a bottle of champagne from our silver wedding celebrations which we put in the freezer to chill....and from our patio watched the post being replaced!
What an ending to a good day eh?

  3. Seems to me that you two have the life of Riley, whoever Riley was.

  4. It's come to it when you have to raid the champagne store.. :)

  5. This sounds like such a wonderful day even with the electrical pole being knocked down and your power being out for a few hours.
    Wow the repair to the pole was so fast !

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Sounds like a lovely day, what a shame you had to suffer and drink champagne cos the electricity was off. (wink, wink)
