The Lake District: Day 2

Our second day in the Lake District was spent in the North near Ullswater and Keswick. We were told the North is more rugged than the south and so attracts a more active crowd. But we decided to take it easy and just enjoy the scenery of the area while wandering around.

Saturday night, we stayed at a B&B called Lowthwaite, and although I don’t have much experience with B&B’s, it is probably the nicest one I’ve ever stayed in. They had an East African theme going on and all of the furniture was made from old Tanzanian boats. It was quite difficult to find as it is pretty far from civilization but the hosts, Jim and Tine, were wonderful and I would recommend this place to anyone.

This is us at Friar’s Crag! The weather was amazing considering how brown everything still is here. The sun was shining for our entire visit.
