CUMBRIAN GETAWAY

I love winter getaways !  an air of excitement surrounds the preparations and travelling thoughts rush in and out ….how cold? how wet? how windy?  weather forecast checks….. looks good ??
time factors…. travel time…. rest time…. wake up time…  sleep time….
too exhausted to sleep….
packing dilemmas…. wet gear, warm gear, walking gear, thick wear, thin wear… enough to last the week…
self-catering week…. food supplies, bedding, linen, what the? grocery starter pack…. alcohol? of course….
up at the crack of dawn…. no before …. car loaded previous night…. gulp the hot coffee….
thermos, sambos, snacks and fruit…..away we go….

Getaway CumbriaM2… on our way… weather fine…perfect… every two hours stop – switch drivers, refuel vehicle, recharge occupants with coffee and pre-packed lunch and snacks…. and loo break…. estimated stopping time 20-25 minutes every 2 hours.

ETA ??? 7-8hrs

Arrived Keswick 1.30pm –

Keswick, Cumbria

well deserved break here – parked up and strolled around town…… recouped …. good 1 hour break…..  not far now about another hour to destination….

  1. In picture 1 it looks like it is clouding up a bit.I know you can’t wait for a sunny day.I live in Maryland USA,and sometimes we can go days without seeing the sun.Picture 2 looks like people are out enjoying themselves.
