I understand there used to be samplers on the wall, but sadly they are no longer there. Instead this is what we found of an artistic nature.
Now the children are grown, and Tom no longer uses his tripod for his "food" photos, but he's still taking them. Here are a few he took on the trip.
We had an unexpected driving adventure our first night in Ambleside. We had driven about a half mile to a restaurant—we would have walked but it was raining. After a lovely dinner, we headed back to the inn where we were staying. However, "thanks" to the one-way streets and one wrong turn, our GPS routed us on a narrow and windy mountain road which also had lots of fog. What we thought would be a 5-minute drive turned into a 40-minute one, and we saw more sheep than cars on the road! Tom later told me he was thankful it was so foggy that I couldn't see very the steep drops. I've decided the next time we're in such a situation, I'll walk regardless of how hard it is raining or how windy it is!
And of course, what would a trip to England be without enjoying some tea? I discovered Lady Grey, which is lighter than Earl Grey and also has some orange and lemon flavors. Wonderful! You can bet I'll be looking for some here.
