This morning was a bit better so after breakfast we hopped in the car and had a look around the area. We are staying close to Lake Windermere and drove around most of the lake. First stop was Beatrix Potter territory in Bowness - on-Windermere. Beatrix Potter of course is well know for her childrens stories and lovely illustrations Some of her characters are the very famous Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Mrs Tiggy-winkle The little books are still popular today both with parents and their children
Our next stop was the Motor Museum, what a surprise that was. Full of beautiful restored cars of all eras, very well displayed and a marvelous collection. They also displayed motorbikes, bicycles, little pedal cars etc etc. Anything realy that concerned mobility on wheels. A very nice way to spend a few hours on a rainy day,
Crossed the lake by ferry on our way home, another experience and gives you a different view of the lake and how big it is. The Lake district is a very nice area to visit and offers lots of attractions, unfortunately we do not have enough time to cover it all but we gave it a good try today.
Despite the weather we had a very interesting and rewarding day.
