Helen also managed an extra visit to view the Morris stained glass in the Troutbeck Church nearby….
Before I share our wonderful Cruise on the Lake I am backtracking to a few nights ago as I had no room to do it before. Last Friday evening was spent in Hawkshead where we visited a brewery and then dined in a cookery school. First the Hawkshead Brewery where I even had a taste and I am not one that generally likes a beer!…….the five brewers are shown here…….
Following this new experience (well for me anyway!) we moved nearby to Lucy Cook's Cookery School where we were treated to a dinner experience with a difference. To watch the food being prepared was a great treat……….
So speaking of dining brings me back to our cruise on the Lake where we dined tonight and in Victorian style on a Steam Yatch - The Gondola and what a magnificent dining treat! The two hour cruise was delicious in more ways the one….the fine dining, the peace of the lake and the sheer beauty of this magnificent Lake District. I will let the photos do the talking……….
Ruskin's House in the distance……Brantwood……..
and thankyou Penny for showing that we were really there!……..
Sadly tomorrow is our last day so more of that soon x
