Last weekend was Lily's birthday and all we have heard for the last couple of weeks is "three candles"!
We had a lovely day, just the three of us, with family joining us in the evening for a slice of cake and, of course, some party rings.
The day was ours to do as we pleased so we travelled to Haverthwaite and caught the steam train to Lakeside at the south shore of Windermere. A relaxing journey of about three and a half miles.
Beautiful views as we got off the train.
Overlooking the lake towards Gummers How. The view from the top can be seen on my spring post here.
This is where we boarded the steamer and set sail, travelling up the lake towards Bowness. A fabulous boat trip with amazing views over the lake.
Following a picnic lunch at the side of the lake we returned the same way.
My gorgeous girl, who doesn't deal well with fuss and noise, had the perfect Lily kind of day. I enjoyed it too. Great memories.
