Bakewell Tart?

I'm really behind on all the blog posts so I'm going to try and rapidly catch up with what's been happening over the last few weeks and then stay on top of the updates so that I can write a little more coherently and actually say something relatively interesting than forgetting all the things that I've been doing/thinking!

Anyway, closely on the heels of the day out at Tatton Park was another in the Derbyshire countryside for the Easter Monday bank holiday including having a quick wander around Bakewell as well as queuing to get in, park, and then to get chips (you wouldn't believe the number of people wanting to get food, the place was packed, all places had huge lines of hungry people waiting outside!).

Saw a few other attractions while there and the weather was really nice and sunny and warm. Probably shouldn't have left the trip to Poole's Cavern until the end of the day as it was *really* cold in there!

This is Lucy's new friend at one of the attractions we went to (can't quite remember where this was). I have no idea why Lucy wanted to pose with the plastic penguin or why she apparently wanted to take it home! I'm just thankful that she didn't try!

Equally I have no idea of the significance of the picture on the wall or why on earth we both have photos next to it, I guess it's just something that has to be done on a day out in the sun (that rhymes :D ).

The caves were quite nice but it's really difficult to get decent pictures in the gloom unless you have a proper flash and a fair bit of patience. I think this one is the best I could manage and ultimately it's not very interesting - I think Tatton Park or similar with nice bright colours and sunshine is better for getting good pics :D

Anyway, it was a fantastic day out and really must do more things like this and learn how to take better photos as well!

The photo's look great to me. I can see the attraction in the plastic penguin, maybe its a Lucy thing :)

Lovely pictures, Fiona. I was actually very close to that park on a visit to England. Wish we had gone there. Thanks for posting the link to the park.
