We arrived in Preston yesterday and met Viv and Roland for a meal in the pub next to our Premier Inn
It was lovely to meet them again, but gosh how cold it was and wet too, us southerners are not used to this weather, though we had read the weather forecast and we are expecting this horrible weather this week!!
Today we thought we would go to Kendal. After a wonderful breakfast at Premier Inn we arrived in kendal to find the British Cycle race was travelling today through Cumbria. We would have loved to stay and watch it but all roads in and out of the town would be closed from 1 - 5pm, so we left and through driving rain arrived at our hotel. here are some photos of our drive through the stuggle pass to the Kirkstone pass through the car window!
Still beautiful though moody. Hopefully we will do a walk tomorrow but def not in driving rain!!!
