Travel Timehop #16 – Lake District 2013
When are we timekeeping to?
It was August 2013 and we were on our first family summer holiday. We’d already been to Dawlish in Devon and were now stopped half way up the country on our way to Scotland for a wedding. It was a bit of an epic road trip with a six-month-old but we survived!
Where in the world
Our half way stop off was at Keswick in the north of the Lake District. We parked Tin Box at the Caravan Club site on Derwentwater and spent a few days exploring the area. This included a stomp up Cat Bells, which was a relatively easy and short climb compared to some that Mr Tin Box has taken me on over the years.
This was Tin Box Tot’s first experience of one of her daddy’s up hill expeditions. We had recently bought her a new baby carrier from which she enjoyed views of the lake and surrounding peaks, as well as the odd nap while we did the leg work.
When we reached the top of Cat Bells we unpacked TBT and our lunch. There was also a lovely lady selling slices of delicious cake to raise funds for Help for Heroes – it would have been rude to say no.
I love TBT’s cheeky face in this photo. I can’t believe how much personality she had at just six months old. What a cutie.
