This time a week and a day ago it was my 21st birthday! To celebrate, me and my friends spent the weekend in a camping barn next to Lake Ennerdale in the Lake District. It was so much fun, and Ennerdale is such an unspoilt, beautiful part of the country. It took half an hour (or at least it felt like it) just to drive down the lane to our barn. On Saturday, the weather was glorious! The sky was blue, the sun was out, and it wasn’t too windy. We spent the day swimming in a nearby lake (which was cold!) and in the evening we cooked our dinner around the fire pit. I took lots of pictures whilst we were away, and here are a few.
Here’s the gang (minus me!)
Look at how clear the water is! You could see right through to the bottom, it was beautiful.
On Sunday the weather was not as nice. It was raining almost all day! We braved the harsh conditions nevertheless and walked around Lake Ennerdale. It took us 4 hours, including a soggy sandwich stop! It’s crazy how different my pictures look form one day to the next. Even though rain is nasty, it makes the scenery look so atmospheric. Here are some pictures from Sunday.
I couldn’t have hoped for a nicer birthday weekend! I would definitely reccomend a holiday in the lake district to anyone who has the chance to go.
