Day 15: Cumbria II

Today Eric and I had different plans so we split up for the morning. I dropped him off about 2 miles away at Grizedale Forest so he could go mountain biking...

...while I went to visit Beatrix Potter’s estate in Near Sawrey. Beatrix bought this house with the earnings from her first book. It’s a pretty small house even after the extension she put on it. Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside which stinks because just before passing, Beatrix left the house in the hands of the National Trust and told them to not touch a single thing. So everything inside is exactly how she left it. Some pictures of the grounds...

After taking picking up Eric, we did a rerun of the night before; dinner at The Tower Bank Arms (which was really good. Don't let the photos fool you) followed by another star-filled sky.
