Late Summer Daze - Beautiful Landscapes from The Lake District

Now that the rain and wind of classic Autumn have hit London hard, it's difficult to believe that just a few weeks ago, we were running around the Lake District with the Summer sunshine in full swing. Despite visiting in September, we were lucky to be met with the most incredible weather - green leaves turning red against a cloudless blue sky.

I love the Lake District. Staying in Ambleside, we were at the doorstep of all manner of beautiful woodland walks and miniature waterfalls. This is going to be a very image heavy post, so be warned! It's also a mixture of photos taken from my phone and my camera, which is why there is a bit of a quality shift. It was a really liberating break - a nice escape from my work and myself, swapping make-up and bumper bangs for sun screen and mermaid hair!

Here's a list of some of the places in the photos.

- The beautiful Ambleside.
- Crazy Golf at White Platts.
- The lovely Esquires Café in Ambleside.
- The Giggling Goose in Ambleside - great cake after a long walk.
- The Rock Shop - A Dinosaur lovers dream!
- The beautiful Derwentwater Lake, viewed from a Keswick Launch boat tour.
- The Langdale Pikes, Wrynose Pass, Hardknott Pass, Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and Muncaster Castle via the amazing Mountain Goat Tours.
- Stock Ghyll Force, with it's lovely, tiny waterfalls.
- Rydal Mount & Gardens, home to William Wordsworth.
- Fellinis, a lovely vegetarian restaurant and cinema in Ambleside.

Until next time,
