Lake District, September Day 1 and 2.

A relaxed start for packing yesterday and finally away at 12.00.  Stopping for lunch at Doncaster services and then shopping at Kendal Morrisons we pulled up outside the van at 5.00 and were set up with a brew by 5.30.  The only slight fly in the ointment was the fact that we don't have running water.  Initially we thought it was an airlock but further investigation revealed that the 'O'  rings had perished.  Fortunately our service engineer  is going to be on the site this afternoon so fingers crossed.
Although we had woken to a wet morning, the weather gradually improved as the day went on until we were relaxing in the warm sun.  I amused myself by photographing fungi and watching the birds visiting our neighbour's bird feeders: Nuthatch, blue tit, great tit, coal tit, Robin and the ubiquitous wood pigeon hogging the table.
Eventually the service engineer arrived to sort a neighbour's heating and bring our 'O' rings which immediately solved our problem.  Shortly afterwards we drove to Thomas's in Lancaster for excellent  fish and chips.  A good day.
