Back in October we had a weekend adventure in the Lake District. This was our first time staying away from home with the baby. He did great!

When we arrived it was after dark. But when we woke up we saw that the apartment we rented had great views!

We spent the first day hiking near Keswick. Neil didn’t know what to think. The sun kept peeking through the clouds and we stayed (mostly) dry.

After the hike we had lunch and explored the cute town centre of Keswick. There was a market going on.

We started another hike from the town that took us to Derwentwater lake. The scenery was just stunning! Neil slept through most of it.

The next morning we had a hearty English breakfast and went to explore the Castlerigg Stone Circle. There were some new age hippy types there banging drums and burning incense and communicating with the spirits. We took some pictures and tried not to get too muddy.

We then piled back into the car for the journey home and enjoyed the beautiful scenery, enhanced by a sleeping baby in the back seat.
