From Canterbury to Windermere

We left Canterbury on Saturday, 19th May.  After a delicious breakfast at the Goods Shed with dear Emilie, we hopped on a train bound for St. Pancras and waved goodbye to our beloved Canterbury. We took a cab to the Goods Shed from Tim and Emilie’s. Here is our luggage awaiting the cab’s arrival.

We got off the train at St. Pancras and made our way down the street to Euston. The kids were so good! We had filled the stroller full of stuff, so they had to walk..

Then we boarded our train bound for Glasgow.  Our stop:  Oxenholme in the Lake District.

After a visit to the grocery store (conveniently located at the railway station!), we walked .7 miles to our rental cottage:  Airedale.  The kids rode their scooters there, and were really good sports.  We made it!  And oh boy, it is beautiful here!  The weather forecast is excellent, so we’re expecting some fun times and beautiful scenery during our week in the Lake District.
