Thanks to my fantastic navigation skills we took a slight detour while on the way to Buttermere.
The peak of this exciting new route was an encounter with a road full of sheep.
There was also a goose. This goose took it upon itself to stand its ground and started hissing at the sheep. This we all watched from the sanctuary of the car.
After this excitement (well, it was for us city folk anyway) we then drove through a high mountain pass – which was a different kind of excitement.
Suffice to say, we made it there in one piece.
