Ullswater, Cumbria. It’s lovely here !

Following last minute changes to the last minute changes !!!!!!!! ( am I turning into Mr McGoo or Victor Meldrew ?)

Just had a short drive out alongside Ullswater. The weather is dry and fairly bright. The scenery breath taking.
We got 57 mpg on the way up cruising just under 60mph due to volume of traffic on the M6. Almost ran into a “shed” load of huge plastic drainage pipes from a Highways Maintenance flatbed. It fell right in front of us. You Know who you are Knumb skull ! Bloody dangerous and very fortunate no-one injured. It’s a good thing that the truckers behind the loose load reacted so quickly to warn others.
Had lunch not far from Aira Force Waterfall (shown above). Nowhere near as exciting as the picnic with Paul and Kate but tasty and warm. There is a chill wind. The camper gets warm quickly and stays oh so comfy even with the roof up. Have not had to set the heating above about 1/2 setting and that gets too warm.

We can feel our batteries recharging. A break up here is highly recommended. Oh, try the American Pale Ale at the Glenridding Hotel. Hoppy with a grapefruit finish. The Ale, not the Hotel !
