Peter Rabbit

Stayed overnight in the Lakes District at Gowbarrow Lodge, strange place, but I guess when you travel as we are you have to put up with the rough...

Such a beautiful district, Ullswater was so beautiful. We went for a walk up to the waterfall at Aira Force, probably the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls, the main force falls 70 feet from below a stone footbridge. Loved the footbridge, such workmanship, reminded me a bit of the spikey bridge back home in Tasmania.

So many exciting things to see today. We went to High Top. the delightful small 17th-century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous children's stories. There were so many evocative sights here. Mr. McGregor's garden looked exactly as it did when that naughty Peter Rabbit decided to disobey his mother and squeezed under the gate, hey the gate was there as well!

The Beatrix Potter Gallery in Hawkshead, previously the office of her husband, William Heelis.

Windermere Lake, Derwentwater Lake, Keswick - what can I say! Loved it.
