A Wonderful Week ...

For those of you who saw my post here, you will know that Eddie and I have been away for a short break ... and what a wonderful time we had.

Our weather from start to finish was wonderful. It was so lovely to spend time with family, and so enjoyable meeting up with low carb team member and good friend Graham. Our final few days were spent in the wonderful Lake District.

We spent time walking, cruising (on Lake Windermere) a little shopping and some very relaxing moments enjoying a tea or coffee in outdoor cafes ... yes the word wonderful sums up our break so well.

So it's time to sort through some photographs - but in the meantime I'll leave you with these two.





All the best Jan

BEAUTIFUL....so glad you were able to get away. I am so excited about heading to Calif in July. Not been there since summer of 2015 so I miss it but most of all missing my son. Calif is a great place to visit. Not carrying my professional camera with me but I will have my smaller point and shoot so I hope to get a few good pics. Can't wait to see more pics.

Lovely! Hard to beat the Lakes in good weather - and even the north-west is getting sunshine at the moment...whoopie!! Wonderful shots, Jan.

Well I don't know. You've been up here almost past my door and never called in. It is hard to beat The Lakes though and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip Oop North.

Such lovely spots, Jan, and it looks as though the weather was very kind! I remember cruising on Lake Windermere and being the only one on deck ... it was bitterly cold!
