Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’ at the Lake District

I have just spent the past few days at my current favourite place in the UK: The Lake DIstrict in Cumbria. I have fallen madly in love with the place. I still cannot believe a place as gorgeous as this lays in the heart of England.

I got to chill by the lake:

I spent a few hours staring at this:

The next morning, I went on a 3-mile hike to Orrest Head:

It was worth it. Just look at the view:

I had some time to reflect:

Once I got back down, I went back to the lakes and tried rowing:

I got tired very easily, so I had to put my feet up:

And took a selfie:

Before the night ended, I went on a cruise:

Saw some breath-taking views:

and saw the sunset:

 

Oh, I almost forgot… I spent the whole time with the most amazing person in the world…

Groundhog Week – Weather, family, fun!

Today’s Daily Prompt: If you could relive last week, would you? Would you change anything?

We had an amazing week last week, weather-wise, here in England. As I have said before, sunshine and warmth rarely grace Manchester. Therefore, I am really grateful to have experienced a full week of sunshine last week, and if I will be allowed to relive last week, I would do so mostly because of the weather. In addition to not having to take an umbrella everywhere, people are generally happier when the sun is out.

I also had the pleasure of being with my whole family last weekend. We spent some time away in Lake District, Cumbria. We swam, ran, walked and talked all weekend. We also ate together – a very pleasant and therapeutic time for all of us. It is amazing how we all cherrished the time we had together as times such as this do not often happen due to our busy schedules and geographical locations.

All in all, I do want to relive last week and I do not want to change a thing. However, if reliving last week would mean that I would lose the next seven days, I would refuse the opportunity. I would rather experience exciting things in the future, armed with the hope that there are even brighter things ahead than relive the past.
