Glamorous camping in the Lake District
Back from holiday now. Sam and I went glamorous camping up in the Lake District at the south of Lake Windermere.
The weather was mixed, but as we were staying in a yurt with all the mod cons – stove, fridge, futon, basic cooking facilities etc – it had far less impact on us than if we had been in our little tent.
We did a bit of walking, sightseeing and generally relaxing.
One of the photos above is of our yurt's brightly coloured front door. The other is of the wicker man/woman we stumbled across when wondering around our campsite. After we got over our initial mild shock the nice people constructing it explained that we were safe and it was for the Festival at the weekend.
No virgins were sacrificed in the making of this blog post.
