Our last day in The Lake District

When we left Brockwood Hall it was -1degC but within 5 minutes it was 1degC with a high of 4degC for the day. Our first stop was Ravenglass where we walked on frozen roads to the Roman Bath House ruins.

They were built in 130AD and the fort in the area was occupied until the end of the 4th Century. We had espressi and carrot cake at The Ratty Arms (£5.85) before we drove to Seascale. From here we could see the Isle of Man. We stopped at RB Woodall in Lane End where we bought Banty eggs (€1 for 6) and a pork pie. They are the suppliers of Cumberland sausages to Her Majesty the Queen of England. At Broughton-In-Furness we went to the Black Cock Inn for lunch. I had a half pint of Strongbow and Dave had Ambleside Taglag. We both had broccoli and Stilton soup (£12.45). From there we went to Melville Tyson for olives, another pork pie and a slice of ham and leek quiche. This will be our lunch while we drive to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. We got back to Brockwood Hall at 14:25. Dave went to sauna and swim while I got stuck in to finishing my book. For the first time ever Dave finished his before I finish mine.

We went for a final whisky at the pub. A Glenlivet for me and a Singleton for Dave. We had a relaxing evening, finishing up food and wine and starting our packing.
