We had to check out of our lovely Keswick accommodation at 10am so there was time for a couple of hours of wandering around Keswick before moving to Buttermere, a lake in a valley to the west of Keswick.
Luke kindly let me drag him around a number of shops in which I bought nothing but we did pick up some fudge, a bottle of Kin toffee vodka and a Lake District book for Sue.
The next and last stop is Buttermere. Our house is relatively remote so we need to take everything.
Mark and Sue brought their car so they are taking the bags while the rest of us take the bus. We were hoping for a double decker but ended up with the back seat on a single storey bus.
The bus finished at Buttermere so we walked the last bit until we saw the sign.
I went for a little walk and found two smashed glasses by the creek so I picked up all the big bits and brought them back.
We came back and took the lawn chairs out. There is a building with a bed and breakfast on the property but I’m yet to see another person.
Once the wind got up we moved to a sheltered spot.
We finished off the evening with pizza, wine and Bananagrams. Sue won two, Mark won one, and I was just happy to play.
Then we were off to bed in our tiny little beds in our tiny little rooms. I’ll post some photos of the inside of the cottage tomorrow. Goodnight!
