We left Edinburgh on Monday morning, June 21st, 2010 and drove south to the north of England, heading for the beautiful Lake District. I was hoping to see Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top Farm and Perry wanted to see that and also the setting for Arthur Ransome’s Amazons and Swallows books. We were both lucky enough to be very satisfied with the results. Anne did so much driving to make this part of our trip extra special and this was after driving us around a lot in the DES/Edinburgh part of the gathering. Tomorrow I will post some pictures after our arrival at Anne’s home in Somerset.
