On 20th October we went to Brighton and spent a most enjoyable day by the sea in the sunshine. The following Monday saw 39 of us setting off to Kendal in sunshine but as the week progressed the weather worsened. However it didn’t dampen our spirits. It was a Turkey and Tinsel week so we had an early Christmas. We visited Lake Windermere, Hawkshead and Skipton. On the Wednesday we went to Ullswater and Keswick and then up over the Kirkstone Pass. Fortunately this was the best day weatherwise. Finally we celebrated Halloween on the coach on the way home. A truly great holiday! Thanks to Kath Capsey for organising.
