Darlington to the Lakes District

Monday 1 August
Left Elmham North and drove to Darlington. Went for a walk in South Park
 
and then had dinner at the hotel where we were staying - Blackwell Grange, an old manor house with a golf course.

Tuesday 2 August
Visited Jean and Bill at Darlington. I went for a walk
while Jean and Robin discussed family history. Bill and I then discussed his cats (four), history and the state of the world.

From Darlington we drove to Lake Windermere in the Lakes District where we are staying at the Beech Hill Hotel.
We then explored the area closest to the hotel
before driving to Bowness on Windermere for another wander.
Dinner at the hotel then watched the sunset over the lake.
