More Lakes district

We visited the grammar school William Wordsworth attended.  Apparently the students were issued with pocket knives to sharpen their ink pens, so carved their initials into the wooden desks.

We stayed in the house Beatrix Potter bought for her mother.  Lovley lawns and very quiet.
Tea in the sun was an indulgence and it was glorious weather.

We walked to the nearby town of Bowness and then returned via a lakeside walk.  everyone comes to walk!

intoI love the sound of all that walking - treading on green and in such wonderful, historical footsteps.
