I fear that this weeks Meandering could curtailed somewhat and have a lot to do with indoor attractions.....seems we have the same weatherman as a couple of months ago.....keeps telling me Low Pressure is in control. That's not very good news for taking pretty pictures......may get a few dramatic stormy ones but we'll have to wait and see what happens. The day started well in nice sunshine and reasonable temperature. Roads were great, think we did about 150 miles with only a couple of gear changes.....not bad in my book. Unfortunately ran into drizzly conditions from Manchester upto Kendal but nothing drastic. Came out of ASDA to find it a bit!!! heavier, but hey!! we're on holiday and the one thing you cannot control is the weather so let's just get on with it. Usual diversion into Bowness followed for a beer and a bite to eat. Pub overlooking the lake serving Carvery's at £3.95!!!! exceptional value I thought, especially as we got a little bit damp getting there. Our original venue for sustenance having no tables available, probably something to with the rain ??? bet the manager there was a very happy man. 30 odd tables full and the majority ordering food..... Despite the weather our adopted home of Ambleside seemed quite busy, lot of traffic and very few guest houses showing 'No Vacancies'
Supposed to be a reasonable day tomorrow so we are hoping to get to the Loweswater Show, a relatively small show but should be good fun. A few tentative plans for walks in mind, but see what meets us when we open the curtains each morning..... Evenings will not be a problem plenty of pubs and eating establishments to keep us entertained.
Well that has set the scene, I only hope we can find enough to see and do to keep you all entertained. I'll be back. . .
