The Lakes

INDONESIA | Tuesday, 12 June 2012 | Views [275]

Hello to the Lakes. This place never gets old and always looks good. We have a camp site for the day and night, so we freshen up after the drive and head out to the town. The Lakes are always busy and being we have arrived in June makes no difference. There are people everywhere and the kids are loving all the ducks and swans just at arm’s reach. The ice-cream place me and Gobey always go to never fails to have the best ice-cream here. So with everyone kids and adults all ice-creamed we are ready for a boat trip.

We head out for a boat tour down Lake Windermere with a stop at Ambleside, where have to return Gobey’s trousers that he bought in Wales that are faulty. Because only Gobey can buy trousers where there is only like 5 stores round the UK. One in Wales and one in the Lakes, lucky we are in the area. When we get to Ambleside we have 30mins to get off the boat, get the trousers swapped and head back for the last boat back to Windermere. Talk about cutting it fine. And if we miss the boat it’s a £40 taxi fare back to Windermere.  

Well we mange to get the trousers swapped, made it back to the boat and now it’s time to get some tea. Early night is needed too as tomorrow we head for Blackpool. We find the nicest restaurant. The food was great but talk about big portions. The kids loved their mac and cheese. Ty has been feeling sick and after a full day out in the fresh air has crashed at the end of the table. Leah and Alex are loving the music and are dancing like they are nutters. They are dancing so much so that a lady in the bar has bought them a giant cookie. Kids do come in handy!!

Back to the camp site we head as tomorrow we are off to Blackpool.
