Our final day in the Lakes was really bittersweet. We’d had such a lovely time relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Cumbria, we’d been answerable to no one being able to get up when we wanted, eat when we wanted, light fires, relax, read, walk and have cake for breakfast. It was an amazing chilled out week and a great start to our marriage, we both agreed the cottage we had stayed in was so wonderful we’d really love to come back and were already planning a few more trips round the uk. We decided to take a drive around the countryside on the last day having an amazing lunch in Hawkshead at Poppi Red followed by some slightly terrifying driving round tiny little lanes with tractors coming full pelt at you.
We ended the day by watching the sunset over Lake Windemere in Bowness. It was a gorgeous day and our only day of proper sun since we had arrived so we wanted to make the most of it. Donning our coats and scarves we walked a long the peer and watched as the golden light reflected on the water. Walking further down the shore I found myself surrounded by hundreds of ducks, geese, swans and pigeons as I watched the quiet still water sparkle. I wished that moment would last forever, just Russell and I surrounded by gorgeous scenery, not a care in the world and nowhere to be.
