|Today was a travel day leaving Bordeaux around noon and arriving in Manchester, England around 4:00 p.m. We had made arrangements for private transportation to our rental house in Bowness-on-Windemere and made it there by around 6:00 p.m. The English countryside was lovely and in the area where we are staying, there are a lot of sheep & cattle. The fields are divided either by hedges or old stone walls. We found a great restaurant so we could have our first fish & chips of the trip. There is nothing better than this original English food!! An early evening as we have made arrangements for a full day tour of the area tomorrow.
