Still it was lovely to see my Nan again and reacquaint myself with the beautiful Lake Windermere.
On Wednesday we decided to take a boat ride across the Lake from Bowness to Ambleside and then take the train to Haverthwaite for lunch before heading back again...

Haverthwaite station was a lovely place to stop for lunch. There were plenty of tables to sit at, a little park for the kids to play and a display of owls from a local rescue centre. And the cafe sold proper tea in huge mugs!

Then it was time to head back to Lakeside for the return trip across the lake...
