North to the Lakes

Yesterday morning we bid farewell to our little cottage in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

After returning the rental car, we boarded a train North. The first leg was in a local train and required a quick sprint from one station in Birmingham to the next, but we caught the next train. The train ride north was beautiful as the scenery changed from urban and industrial  to hills and eventually mountains. We’re staying quite a ways north–almost by Scotland in the Lake District.

We have absolutely fallen in love with this little town. The town itself is quaint and European looking, but has the same kind of nature-loving chic as Burlington Vermont. Around every corner is some stately mountain peeking through, and we only need to walk a few minutes to be on a lake with a stunning view of the mountains.

These pictures nowhere near capture the beauty, but will hopefully give some sense of the place.
