Tuesday we went away on holiday, we went to the Lake District for a few days, we love it up in the lakes, but F breaking her coller bone meant we were limited to what we could and couldn't do. Normally we'd go to Grizedale Forest, which has some lovely walks that the children can manage, amazing views, without being too steep. Small legs don't do steep!!
Because of the fall and the fracture I have to admit I was concerned about how she would manage even the most gentle of walks, only having one arm!! So Wednesday we got in the car and drove to Windemere, found the Lakeland Limited Store, and after 15 minuites in there decided that shopping in Windemere was a bad idea!!
Next stop the Aquarium on the Lakes, which was another disaster, it was heaving it down with rain at this point and lots of people had obviously had the same idea, we had no change for the car-park so DH went into the Aquarium to get some, they wouldn't change his money, said we had to go to the steamers to get change. So the Aquarium lost out on a family of 6. Why do places have these stupid rules that only harm their own business???
Back into the car, and heading off to who knows where!! We came across a sign post for a wild animal park which we followed, down into a little village with a stop for lunch and then off to the South Lakes Wild Animal Park It wasn't raining, it was wet, but not raining and it was a lovely afternoon.
