A three hour train ride south of Glasgow is Windermere in England's Lake District. I stayed in Mrs. Pearson's B&B. A nice room that's a 3 minute walk from the train station.
I took the 3 hour Steamer Tour of Lake Windermere that afternoon. It was very beautiful and peaceful.
On the train to Windermere that morning, I met a California couple. That night I ran into them in the first pub I occasioned. We had a great evening.
Lakes and Highlands Tour
The next day I took an all day mini-bus tour of the lakes and highlands. It was well worth it, showing the tremendous beauty of northwestern England.

Tomorrow I'm taking the 6 hour train to Cardiff, Wales...
