This weekend I crossed an item off my bucket list that has been there for quite a while - to visit the Lake District and more specifically Beatrix Potter's house.
I love the Beatrix potter stories, I have the tv show and movie on DVD. The sweeping landscape views in both sets have inspired me immensely to visit the area. There are two train stations accessible in the district from London, I chose to arrive at Windermere, one ofthe ...

... the background. Clouds hung over mountain tops, misting down into the valley as we walked the street lined with cottages and brick shops. Not finding anywhere to eat, we headed back towards the bus stop and continued on past in the opposite direction. Off the path, we found Wordsworth's home, a white cottage with green ivy climbing up the side, and a brown brick roof. His view was undeniably the topic of his poems.
