Sally and I set a precedent in 2007 that we would have a girls treat in the summer and in the winter. We can never repeat the sheer exhilaration and pleasure of the hot air balloon ride but we almost got there during a day off on 29th June.
Beautiful weather and high temperatures.
Top down on the car and a drive through the Lake District to Ambleside and a delightful cruise on a steamer on Windermere. Ambleside to Bowness and back. I’d forgotten how gorgeous it was.
Then, luxury of luxuries! Afternoon tea at Samlings Hotel near Ambleside. Oh such bliss. Such decadence. What stunning service and champagne and cakes. BLISS BLISS BLISS.
