I only get out of bed for adventures….

And I have had lots! We spent 10 days in Bolton le Sands just north of Morecambe. The weather was generally shocking bar a couple of days. Family and friends visited so day trips to Ambleside, the Lakes and Morecambe gave way to pub nights and David Bowie tribute nights. Yep Bolton le Sands has it all.

Paddling the immense Morecambe bay with the Lake District on the horizon. Tidal warnings had been heeded as it was seriously fast.

Bank holiday over and we moved up to the Lakes proper and spent a cold but enjoyable few days in Castlerigg, Keswick. When the clouds lifted the scenery was stunning, this was the view of Skiddaw from the van….

We walked lots, notably up Walla Crag which was amazing until Elaine’s vertigo struck and we had to walk back down (her scuttling more like a crab on her hands and knees!)

Dog friendly and lots to do you can see why so many tourists visit the Lakes. Unfortunately because they do and it was still school holidays we couldn’t find free motorhome pitches so we’re forced to head eastwards. Not that a couple of days near Lowther Castle was anything to be sniffed at….

(No idea why the lines on the photos and couldn’t get rid of them!)

Dogs on site – everyone had a dog from Jack Russell’s to a huge Benard, whom I bravely sniffed.

  1. Hi there, Doz the mountain lurcher😃
    Once again, I sit here in my favourite armchair, dreaming of being on a grand adventure just like you.
    I love the lakes too; every time I’ve been there it has gotten me very wet. I suppose it’s to be expected given the name “Lake District”😉
    I wonder where your fab motor home will take you all next. Can’t wait to see. Love the photos; you can never have a bad one in the lakes.
    As I write, it is Sunday morning, and we’ve had our walk. I am on my first cuppa and the hounds have had breakfast. All is well on this sunny, yet chilly, morning.
    I’m off to the scribbling room after I’ve had my omelette to finish a third Christmas card I designed.
    I have 10 whole days off now, so I couldn’t be happier😃
    Enjoy your next destination, and I’ll look forward to the next blog.
    Love from Nelly, Daisy, and me. Xxx

    • 10 days, how fab and glad you have some time off. Lots of scribbling, dog walks and gardening! The Lakes were beautiful but so cold, at least the clouds cleared though so we could see the hills. We’re visiting a few friends at the moment near Nottingham then a stage of the Tour of Britain… then who knows! Doz sends love to Daisy and Nelly x
