Day Ten: Ballater to Bassenthwaite

A very short post today as there’s not much to say. Today we started the journey home from Scotland but, unlike the journey north when we did it in one long day, we decided to stop in The Lake District and travel over two days.

We found our B&B near Bassenthwaite, a working sheep farm with a B&B business supplementing the income (outside lambing season when they close to visitors), before heading to Keswick and a boat ride around Derwenwater. We sat in the bow seating area so, although the weather was dry, the wind ensured we still got wet from the spray! It was a slightly strange sensation as, unlike when on our own boat, it didn’t taste salty!

Tomorrow we head for home and the hot and sunny weather we’ve so far been able to avoid!

Jolly sailors
Hair looks lovely …
Lots of hills!
