Great Britain, boats and bears.

We are home! Everytime we come back and drive through the amazing northumberland countryside I have a mini coal miners choir blasting the hymn Jerusalem in my head. Love it. Carrying on the the British trandition overload, I took the girls boating on 'Tallkin Tarn' in Carlisle; this has to be one of my favourite places in England. We discovered pixie hollow and sea dragons, who'd have thought it, right in the middle of the Tarn? Of course a day out with our kids isn't anything without a bear hunt in the woods. Lots of screaming and hiding, mostly from me.
