Last week we took our first Dougalling outing of the season - down to The Quiet Site at Ullswater.
The bad news was that the fuel pump had broken, the good news that the garage had a spare and we were able to get it fixed and back on the road within a couple of hours. The weather was horrible though, driving rain and a gusting wind that managed to relieve us of a windscreen wiper and the number plate as we drove through the Lake District.
The next morning though, the sun shone, the bacon sizzled and it all turned around.
We had what turned out to be a fantastic holiday in the Lake District,
walking (rather more uphill than Zoe and I anticipated)
Dozing in the sunshine
We were sad to leave, but not too sad as there was the excitement of picking up this little bundle of cheek on the way home
