August 7

Well this morning we got up kinda early in order to head to the Lake District on our way back to Oxford.  The trip there was about 4 hours and once we got there we were planning on hopping on a bus.  We were going to visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery and Dove Cottage-Wordsworth’s house…but the bus didn’t show up for an hour….(note the expressions below)

So we ended up taking a nice long walk (lugging all of our stuff) down to the lake in Windermere, which is the train station for the lake country.  Once we got there it was absolutely breathtaking!!

Then we road a bus back up to the train station, since it was uphill, and road for about 4 hours back to Oxford.  Boy, did it feel good to be home!!
