Last Saturday we decided to take our first trip to the Lake District.  We drove for about an hour and a half before stopping at Watermill Inn and Brewing Company. It’s a nice restaurant that brews their own beer.

While driving we passed several town with funny British names

The weather was very nice for a hike. We tried to follow a walk suggested by the National Trust. We took a wrong turn very early in the hike, so we ended up just going on a nice hike through the hills. The top of the hill had a gorgeous view.

All of this land was owned by Beatrix Potter. When she died she donated  it to the National Trust.

Since it was still late January in the UK, it got dark early and we headed home.
