      So after another late night we had a wonderful sleep in, spent some time being lazy and enjoying one of our last chances to be in holiday mode. Julie's friend Katie came to say goodbye before we headed off to catch the bus to do some last minute shopping and browsing around Princes street and beyond. We stopped to have a look at The Dome but the line outside deterred us from going in, we saw a beautiful Aston Martin on the street and decided though we would of liked it there ...

      Picked up one of the free walking tours where we raised ...

      Got up relatively late. Only left Grasmere at 10. Stopped in a few places on the way to Keswick along Thirlmere, a lake. On its southern end it was almost perfectly still like Lake Matheson, providing a great reflection. The low winter sun created some beautiful landscapes. Stopping areas were hard to come by though.

      ... sandwich paired with haggis soup while I enjoyed the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties.

      My mom had unfortunately developed a terrible cold, most likely thanks to the first few hours wandering around London with wet feet, and was looking to rest and stay out of the uninviting weather for a while since we had no plans upon arrival.
