Caravan life is not really for us. Poor Nick kept banging his head on things as he's rather tall and it's a real pain forever putting beds up and down. However, we were inspired to get out about a bit more and have upgraded our tent. But more about that in a future post.
So what did we get up to. Well, we took the boat all around Lake Windermere and encountered many different weather systems throughout the day. Watched the heavy rain that drenched us in Bowness rolling down over the mountains and then an hour later it was sunny again!
Oh well. I do now possess a rather fetching floral waterproof poncho. Makes me look like a walking tent but I was oh so much drier! All in all a very fun day and a really good way to get around Bowness, Ambleside and the lake in general.

Lots of great little walks around the caravan site. We needed some supplies so we decided to walk to the farmshop at Sizergh barn. A lovely stroll through the woods and some fields. Lots of gorgeous wild flowers and some interesting road signs!

Nature highlight of the day was the awesome dragonfly spotted on the way up by elder daughter.
