Holiday in the Lake District April 2012

We have just returned from a fabulous week in the Lake District, we stayed in Coniston which is a beautiful village at the foot of Coniston Old Man.  The little cottage we stopped in was fabulous!  It was well equipped and we couldn't have wished for anything better.  Here is a photo taken from the kitchen door out onto the little garden and the field where we watched the rabbits each morning and evening.

We had a couple of days by ourselves, we did a couple of lovely walks around the area, here is Kevin and Maisie at the shore of Lake Coniston

Maisie loved the water, we found it difficult to keep her away from it :)

On Wednesday, David, Kevin's bother and family, Sharon and Ross arrived with their caravan, they were booked into a campsite a couple of miles away so we spent lots of time with them, here I am waiting for them to arrive before we set off to climb Coniston Old Man 

And here's the group as we set off, not knowing that we would take the wrong route and the total climbing and descending time would be 7.5 hours! 

The views from the top were well worth all the aches and pains that we suffered at the end of the day :)

And just to prove that I made it to the top too :) 

All in all a wonderful holiday, loved every minute of it, totally refreshed and ready for some crafting :)  Perhaps another scrapbook page or two is in order? ;)
