Pauline say's ........ 'I should imagine I am one of many thousands of folk from all over the world who have or do visit the Lake District......... I would have been just about ten years of age the first time we went on a family caravan holiday at Windermere........ and the magic has stayed with me as has the desire to go there.
Its probably one of the inluencing factors that has kept me living and working in Lancashire ......... its only an hour and half away by car via the direct route (but a decent and rambling route by way of the Lancs beauty spots of Rivington, the Ribble Valley, Trough of Bowland and Silverdale just makes the day) so when the 'need' gets strong I can take off and recharge my 'mind's eye' with its colours, shapes, sounds, vistas and wildlife..........'
......... 'My only regret in regards to the Lakes is my physical inability to reach the hilltops anymore .......... with the result that I have never 'bagged' Scafell and probably never will - tho never say never!'
