We had lots of interesting stops, including the slate mine, Grasmere, a ferry ride on Lake Windemere (from Bowness), and ended up at Castlerigg Stone Circle. I know Mark can't control the weather, but despite some cloudiness, it was really quite good. Plus, just on cue, the sun came out at the Stone Circle.
