The last week was spent in the Lake District! We stayed at Derby Cottage, in a town called Ambleside. And 'amble' we did! We spent several days roaming, hiking, perusing shops, and exploring the sites. It was beautiful.
We saw the homes of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, we ate the best gingerbread any of us had ever had, and we spent whole days walking small country roads.

Then we went to Southport for a couple days. Southport is a British seaside/beach town.
This is not the Lake District... the is Southport, where we went after. It's a British beach/seaside town.
