Heading to Grizedale to attend the opening day of Grizedale Go Ape we ended up going the scenic route(my fault for not taking the ferry button off)and taking the ferry across Windermere; if you're heading to Grizedale for a set time don't go this way as the queues can mount up and the ferry isn't exactly speedy.
However for us it was a nice break, with the chance of an ice cream and time to take in the scenery.
Even though I've lived in Cunbria all my life the view still amazes me. For the children at the end of the whole day this is what all 3 of them remembered and wanted to do again.
Due to us finishing early on Go Ape we were able to catch up and head around the Gruffalo trail with my friend and his Daughter(she was too little to Go Ape). Below is them trying to jump out on us.
Gruffalo sculptures (unveiled on 7th June) but this didn't distract any from our adventure.
