Since the theme of my last post was the Lake District, I thought I would continue here as a kind of second part. As I write this short introduction to the following set of photos, I have my Lake District map open before me on my desk. Retracing my steps, both for this year’s trip and others we did in the past, feels good.
As I grow older I feel that doing what makes us happy is one of the best things we can ever do. Life is too short. I say this here because of something some family members asked me the other day: Why do you always go to the Lake District for your holiday?
People just don’t get it do they most of the time. Could the answer be as simple as it seems? Of course it is for chrissakes. Because we love it. Of course. The park is so big, it’s impossible to explore in one take. One could if one wants to. All one needs to do is to stick to the touristy places. There’s plenty to see there, but there’s much much more. It’s like going to Yellowstone to see Old Faithful and going back home.
So, before I digress, I will stop here and let you get on. Do take a look at the photos if you’re interested and keep those messages about planning your next trip to the Lakes coming. I’m enjoying the conversation. Although I think it would be helpful to submit any questions and comments under this post, for everyone to see.
The following photos were taken in Hope Park, right outside Keswick town centre. I walked past it everyday on my way to Derwent Water.
Hope everyone’s having a lovely weekend. Enjoy!
