The One About Penrith...

On Saturday afternoon, after our swim we took a drive out to Penrith.  As we were driving round we saw lots of Halloween activities going on, including a horse drawn carriage driven by a headless coachman, and a sign for a scrapbook shop!  But first thing we did was have some lunch.  Then we walked around the town seeing what was going on.  There was a group dressed up for halloween playing drums, that kept moving round the town, a halloween themed market, and of course the horse drawn carriage.

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go into the scrapbook shop once I was there either!  And picked up a couple of bits, including some pick baby themed ribbons :)

We had a lovely walk round, and stopped in a couple of the other shops picking up Christmassy bits & bobs from the little gift shops.

More to come... next up the non-visit to a castle!
