    ... catching our train for the last stop. It was great to all be together, really felt as though the trip had begun! Gail and Margot took us for a guided afternoon walk around St Bee's which was great since it was a beautiful day and today as it happened started off rainy.
    Anyway, today we began at 9:15am and found our B&B at 5:15 pm. The day was not as difficult as we had imagined and ...

    ... Keswick is a lovely town and the scenery is amazing. On our first full day we went to ashdene bridge and Wotendmouth where Chris used to go for holidays when he was little.

Today we packed up to explore ancestry places. We started at ...

    ... Once we got back to Keswick we walked to the "Pencil Museum". For years pencils had been made in a factory next door including all sorts of colored pencils. During WW II, they even built a special pencil that hid a miniature compass and a map inside for the RAF to use in case they were shot down behind enemy lines.
