Following our lazy start we eventually launched out to buy papers and petrol at Ings. Not quite the £100 tankful but £90 and we only needed 3/4 of a tank!!! From Ings we drove down to Bowness and, despite it being a Saturday, easily found parking. I had wanted to go to Mountain Warehouse to buy beach shoes ready for Iona and eventually found them in Trespass. I was tempted to buy a wetsuit but desisted. I already have 2, a shortie and a very posh tri wetsuit, but they have shrunk and I can't get them passed my hips now!!
Returning to the van, we had lunch and then went out for a potter in Ratherheath Wood that borders our site. It was now time to fire up the BBQ and pour a pint. An excellent way to finish the day.
Images to come when I get home.
