    A break in the Lake District

    Hi all, just finishing up a break at my in-laws apartment in the Lake District. Just the tonic, wide open space, few people (if you avoid the tourist traps), nothing puts problems into perspective like miles hiking in jaw dropping countryside for a week.

    That second photo freaked me out for a second. I thought you took a side trip to Vietnam in the 1970's.

    Black and white picture of a rustic gate on the coastal path, just south of Barrow .... If Victor Charles has made it this far, we are in deep trouble!

    I cruised the length of Lake Windermere. I wish I had had more time there.

    I had to look it up. Didn’t know the area.
    Seems to be extremely beautiful!

    During WWII the Shorts Sunderland was built on the shores of Lake Windermere.



    You can visit the place where they were built. There's a Sunderland lovingly preserved at RAF Hendon. This aircraft had the unusual configuration of having its bombs stored in the midsection and then winched up to racks that were rolled out under the wings to be dropped!


    There were six bunks, a gas-fired galley, a porcelain toilet, and a small machine shop for in-air repairs. Gae big or gae haem!
