Alrighty, lets get you updated on Smooshe’s travels!
On the 15th of November (just over 2 months since arriving in the UK) I finally decided to go somewhere other than just Grange and Kendal (not to say I don’t love those places, they will forever hold a special place in my heart!!)!
Kamila had been telling me how nice Lancaster was, bigger than Kendal, so I HAD to go! I got up early enough to catch the first bus to Grange (9:30) then waited a bit for the first train to Lancaster.
|Witches go that way? Ok... I'm going...|
When the train stopped, I remembered that Kamila said to head right from the station and that street would take me to the shopping centre. I followed the other passengers and LO! (lol) I found shopping!
Now I’ve got to be honest, I wandered around for about 2 hours and I wasn’t impressed. Lancaster had most of the same shops as Kendal, only they were in Lancaster which was farther away for me to get to. I didn’t buy anything besides postcards and I started heading back to the train station.
On the way back to the station, I saw this funny little sign with a witch on it. An official looking street sign... but with a witch on it. Of course I had to follow.
Then I discovered the castle...
|Sure looks like a castle to me!|
|So much fun to photograph!|
When the tour was over I was a little less disappointed with my trip and glad I got a few good pictures (didn’t want the trip to be a waste!!).
Stay tuned for details of my whirlwind trip home!!
