As dad has begun a well earned holiday from work we went off for a family day out to Bakewell. The home ed group had a pottery day at Lathkill Dale last year and I offered to pick up the pots for the group, as they needed picking up from Bakewell I thought it'd be nice to have a little look around. Its only a very small village in the Peak District but its very picturesque and always attracts many visitors, especially on the bank holidays.
We had a look around the shops too and found the original Bakewell pudding shop. I'm not actually a fan of the original bakewell pudding, its not quite what you imagine but I really love Bakewell Tart.
After we had a walk round we went to Chatsworth for a paddle in the lake. Dad helped the children to turn over stones and look for fish.

The house was extremely busy but looked very odd as half of the house is covered up by scaffolding due to some restoration work. Still it was a lovely day. We got a local postcard for our flat traveller William, its going in his journal to take back to America.
