We had one full day to explore some of the Lake District. It is certainly not possible to see everything but we pottered around in our hire car and saw quite a bit.
After settling in to our accommodation in Kendal on the first evening, we found a Thai restaurant for dinner and had an excellent meal. We got chatting to another Aussie couple at the next table to us and swapped stories. They were the first Australians we had met since we arrived.
The next day we drove to Windermere/Bowness which was quite busy with holidaymakers as we were blessed with fine but cool (for us) weather. No matter which way you turned there was stunning scenery.
Here are a couple of other views just near Hill Top.
