Holiday Diary - Day 13

This morning, after going into Carlisle for breakfast, we headed south, down the west coast, to a place called Ravenglass. On the way there we saw more beautiful scenery, drove through another couple of sheep paddocks (I'm not entirely sure why the GPS insisted on taking us that way), had a clash of mirrors (hopefully that won't cost us too much) on a particularly narrow section of road and ended up on the same road we were on when we left Carlisle.

We were going to Ravenglass to catch another steam train, this time is was a miniature railway system from Ravenglass to Dalegarth For Boot. We saw lots of bridges, animals, other trains and train travelers.

Here are the photos. The first couple are of mountains that Sue could see in the distance.

We have plenty of photos taken along the tracks.

After our little train ride we went for a drive a little further south to Barrow-in-Furness before heading inland and turning north to Penrith where we stopped for dinner. Across the road from where we had dinner stands the remains of Penrith Castle.

Tomorrow we leave England for a little while and head into Scotland.
