Feeding the wildfowl and building new jetty
Made the most of our last day. Out of the cottage by 10.00am ready to browse the shops and galleries of Bowness and have one final view of the lake. Then it was up to Windermere to purchase supplies if Hawkshead Red ale from Booths to take home. Had a scone and coffee in Booths, thought the scone was nowhere near as good as previously.
Had a look in the Cookhouse Gallery and was impressed by the works of Jeff Sudders and Anne Blundell amongst others. By this time lunch called at the Inn on Lake over in Glenridding. The rain had started by then but it didn't spoil an excellent lunch at our favourite hotel.
Time then to head off to Harrogate for a couple of nights with one further stop at Hayes Garden Centre in Ambleside where we'd seen one of those 3D maps of the Lake District at what we thought was a bargain price. Turned out not to be a bargain after all being unframed and cheaper elsewhere . So we left it.
A wet and foggy trip along the A65, tiring too. We had to stop for me to have a snooze in a layby but we arrived safely at the Travelodge ready for the weekend.
