As you may have guessed from the last post we have been away for part of the week in the campervan :) The week started off beautifully but then the rain came!! Here are some pics from the trip (we went to coastal Cumbria)

A being delightful in a local eatery!

Breakfast time!

Girl on a pig!

T loving the view out of the train window. The view on this stretch of the railway (Workington/Maryport/Whitehaven/Ravenglass) is gorgeous!

And then we went on a different kind of railway - a steam railway :) The Ravenglass and Eskdake railway to be precise!

The views are lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A handy tip once you are at the top is to turn left out of the station and then left again towards the village of Boot (only about half a mile) Go all the way through the village (it's tiny so it's not far) and over the bridge and you will see Eskdale Mill on the right - it is well worth a look round and there are lots of things for the kids to look at and do. The girls were taken by a mangle (note to self - look for one at the auction so they can do the washing!) and loved being told how the mill worked by a very generous host. There are lots of funny touches for the adults too so keep an eye out for them!

So all in all we had a great holiday and Matt and I are looking forward to going away again in Taz when he is refitted :)

Lovely pictures. It always seems strange seeing my road name as something else - I live on Ravenglass Crescent.

Hi there, looks like you had fun! We took our eldest on the Ravenglass - Eskdale railway a few years ago. He loved it! Vic (new follower) :)
