Near Sawrey

Thursday, August 07, 2008

We had to go to Kendal today and managed to get away early, we rang the ferry to make sure the ferry was operating before we set off, we arrived down at the bottom of ferry hill to find the road blocked, two police cars one ambulance and two fire engines were in attendance, apparently some guy was working on a boat and he was using bottled gas which had leaked, he then started up a generator and boom! fortunately no one was injured and the guy had the presence of mind to push the boat away from the shore so as not to spread the fire to other craft.

We had supper at the Tower Bank when we got back, just managed to get a table because they were busy as usual.
