Lake District Staycation

This year, my husband and I swapped the sunny seaside holiday for a British staycation. And while I missed the sunshine, Lake District did not disappoint! We spent a truly magical few days strolling around the lakes, hiking and slowing down to enjoy the beauties of nature.

An unforgettable journey on those narrow country lanes.

Early morning trip, when even the mountains would have their blanket on, made of clouds.

Breath-taking view of Crummock Water and the surrounding hills.

This is where we could have slept...

We did it! :)

Yellow flowers on a spiky bush, mountains in the background

After the hike, we had time to finally appreciate the beauty of these spiky bushes...

little blue, bell-like flowers with mountains in the distance

... the tiniest blue flowers...

purple purpurea digitalis or lady's glove flowers

... and these poisonous beauties!

At the end of the day our boots were soiled, our feet tired, but our hearts full :)
