Hello everyone! If you follow me on Instagram, check me out here, you will know that me and Gareth recently went on a little day out to Windermere. Gareth had booked a week off of work and I am off for the summer. It's rare that we ever both have time off at the same time so we thought we would use the opportunity to go on a little day out... so we made our butties, packed our crisps and chocolate and went!
We decided to take a trip down to Windermere as Gareth's mum and dad used to love it here. I haven't been in a while either so it was lovely to take a trip down there!
It was absolutely roasting when we went! This mint choc chip ice cream, my favourite if anyone is taking notes, melted faster than I could eat it! I managed however to salvage it! You can't beat an ice cream on a hot day!
We decided to take one of the boat trips they had on offer. They had a few with different routes which is great. Since we didn't want to get too lost as we had train times to keep an eye on for getting home we decided we'd take a boat trip that simply took us round Windermere Lake and then deposited us back to where we started! Above you can see Gaz's 'I'm on a boat' pose. Somebody please forward this post to vogue.
Ignore my lopsided fringe! This is us relaxing on the boat! I just had to scrape my hair back as it was far too warm! The whole ride took around 45 minutes and was £15 for the two of us.
I couldn't stop taking photos as we went around. Every sight was so beautiful! Not only were there the bigger tour boats there were also boats for hire available and boats that people owned out on the lake.
The hotels and houses located around the lake were stunning. I hope me and Gaz can come back for a weekend away somewhere near the lake!
We really looked out on the weather. It was scorching hot and we really needed to keep on top of the factor 50! Still I managed to get burnt on my back and of course I was wearing a dress with a patterned cut out back so my back looked very unusually burnt!
This is Gaz's 'deep in thought pose'. As we went round the lake on the tour the boat driver gave little bits of description and history of the lake which was nice.
As we came to the end of the tour we decided we would sit and eat our dinner on the bits of green you can see on the picture. We brought Kit-Kats to snack on and they had melted in to some other form by the time we came to eat! Needless to say they needed to be chucked in the fridge when we got home to be brought back to life!
Overall it was a lovely day out. I would totally recommend Windermere particularly when the weather is lovely and warm. The lake itself isn't too far from town to so if you fancy a bit of shopping you can pop in to town too! We popped in to town on the way home to pick up fudge for Gaz, one of his favourites, as well as a cooler from Costa for me!
Have you been to Windermere before? Where would you recommend for a good day out? Let me know in the comments!
