after the initial shock of driving on the left side of the road,
ceej quickly learned the adventure of driving on the
narrow and winding roads of the countryside...he called it "james bond driving."
i couldn't believe how narrow some of these roads were...and they were two-way!
we were always hoping that we wouldn't run into a car coming the opposite direction...
that only happened a couple of times and let's just say we're happy we
got the insurance with the rental car.
i found these little roads to be very walkable and pleasant--a good way to
wander and see things that we would have missed had we been in the
car, concentrating only on the road itself.
one of the other "thrilling" things about this country is that
anywhere we went we were bound to be in the neighborhood of
a stone circle...these things are prehistoric, thousands of years old.
not much is known about them, which makes them all the more interesting, yes?
tomorrow i'll be taking you back to oxford when my family came to visit.
hope you've enjoyed the lake district!
