Fondest memory: Visiting the Lake District was one of the numerous places on my to-do list for England and Steven and Susan Tilly were happy to indulge me. We set off from their house in Darlington for a one day trip hiking around the Borrowdale area.
Steve and Susan were fantastic tour guides telling me interesting facts about the area. I especially liked the Squirrel Nutkin story ;-) In the Beatrix Potter series Squirrel Nutkin sails out to an island on a leaf, and this island is the tiny one you see between mine and Steve's head in the picture.
