This was our Queen sized bed we had ! Just as we arrived inside , and before i messed the room up with our things . I wanted this bed to take home , it was that big and comfortable !
And of course , if you`re like me , i always check on how clean the room is , and what toilettries they have !! ;o) This is half of the goodies i brought home with me ! L`Occitane range , which smell divine - and are expensive to buy !
We also had room service , 2 nights in a row , but they called it Duvet Dining ! Which tickled the both of us , but NOT the price ! I had a steak and caramelised onion ciabatta , with homemade chips , in an actual small copper cooking pan , but was disappointed in the portion size . It worked out at 50p per chip ! I felt like "taking" the copper pan as compensation !! lol
A ornamental sun dial , which most rooms looked out onto the main entrance courtyard

We then travelled along the coast , before heading inland . And came to Bamburgh castle.
Which was closed at this time of year , but it is a must see to visit again in the future .
The weather was very cold , rainy and windy , but still got at least a few decent photos .
Sand dunes and a very foggy sea , that the castle over looks ....
We then travelled across country , towards The lake District , Cumbria again . With me taking snaps , as we went along . These ones are for Rhonda , for the time she spent here in the UK .
These were a flock of sheep that saw me at the gate , and decided to come and have a look .
And doesn`t this one look so cute ? !
Further along , were another breed of sheep that i had to photograph .
Rhonda - can you see they have their bums painted ?? :o)
That one is just for you , as i know you laughed so much when you first saw it !
A few taken from inside our car - which came out pretty good i think !
Snow covered peaks in the distance ....
We were at Hartshead Summit , which is 1900 meters above sea level , and it started snowing at the top ! Only travelling down a few minutes , the weather changed again , rain and sunshine.
The i saw a rainbow ! My first captured on film . You can just see it , in the middle of the photo .
I could not stop again to retake , as other cars were behind us .
And one more down in the valley , arriving at Penrith .
Just a few more to follow ....
