Troutbeck & Beamish
Off again and this time it was short trip to The Granary and spend a day at The Beamish Museum, maybe we would see a few things we missed on our first day there.




The Beamish Museum is well worth a visit as it has a lot to offer,




from old pit workings to steam trains, old busses and trams that run all the time to a complete village that has stood still in time.



We then moved to the other side of the country beside Penrith to Troutbeck Campsite

which is set in beautiful countryside and surrounding area

and the weather was reasonably kind to us for most of our stay

The weather was so good we took a trip into the local town of Keswick and Linda even bought herself a new hat

While this bear thought it was hilarious!




One bonus of the visit was
we had some street entertainment from the locals




Another day out in Pooley Bridge,
a local village which is very nice

On our way there we were greeted by a small deer who appears to have stumbled into the water before realising there was people about, to which it made a swift exit

We then went to see one of the launches on Derwent Water by Keswick
that are used on the lakes for visitor tours




We had a coffee while we waited for it to pull away from the landing

Eventually the launch left the landing and moved off. It is a very powerfull boat as it did not take long to disappear into the distance



Having to suffer this good weather
sure takes it out of you .....
So it was after another hard day in the sunshine it was back to the tent for a Cuppa


Finally we would like to add

We have met a lot of nice people during our trips
This time we met Linda & Craig Kay from Manchester
and Mandy & Gary Mackay from Essex
we intend to keep in touch with all of them.

Thank you for confirming that campers are nice, friendly people.
Suggestions are Welcome
