I spent a very enjoyable day in the Lake District over the Bank Holiday weekend. I took some photos and thought I would share them with you. My Mum and I travelled on the steam railway from Haverthwaite to Lakeside and then got the boat from Lakeside and sailed on Lake Windermere into Bowness. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing day. The scenery is always wonderful in the Lake District. Some of you may have seen the film "Miss Potter". Bowness on Windermere is home to the World of Beatrix Potter, a popular tourist attraction. The Steamboat Museum and St Martin's Church, built in the 15th century are also well worth a visit.

Bowness is a very picturesque and bustling town, popular with all ages. There is something here for everyone with activities ranging from walking and horse riding to sailing and water skiing. There are wonderful views from Bowness up into the mountains and across the lake. If you are planning a trip to England, Bowness is well worth a visit. To read more about this beautiful town, follow the link shown below. I've added some more interesting Lake District links too for your enjoyment. Happy surfing!

What a fun day with your mum! ("mom" as we say!). I clicked on the links regarding Beatrix Potter and enjoyed reading her biographical information.

I would love to visit this area, and maybe someday it will happen!

But reading your blog today...well it's the next best thing!

Thank you for your kind words regarding my post...

I joined flickr just now...what a great idea for keeping favorite pictures accessible at the flick of a button!

Thanks Naomi! If you are ever in the United States you can come and visit us! Hopefully, I will be in Texas by then!!

I think Flickr is a great idea too Janey. I got the idea from Sank's blog Old and In the Way. I hope all your dreams come true and you are able to move to Texas to be near your boys. Take care

Bowness is great but try and get further into the Lake District next time as you are missing something even better. Coniston, Ullswater, Wastwater must be seen.
