Leaving Scotland

At 7:30 am today we leave for Scotland and maybe feed the sheep.  Karissa Torrez

We went to breakfast and we ate cereal with milk and orange juice.  I really like tea and so I got some of it.  Jennifer Holland

We got up and got dressed.  Today was our last day in Scotland.  We had to bring our suitcase and overnight bag, then we ate breakfast and got on the bus and drove to the Moffet Woolen Mill.  Sarah Miller

Lake Windemere boat ride

We got to Windermere.   You got a choice to either go on a boat ride, shop, or stay on the bus.  I took the boat ride.  It was raining so you couldn't see that much, but a few things.  Laura Hagen

It was like a once in a lifetime opportunity to go on the boat ride out on Lake Windermere, the biggest lake in England. Jennifer Mitchell

Britannia Hotel, Stockport

Arriving at the Britannia Hotel in Stockport

Checking into the Britannia Hotel, Stockport
When we got to our one night hotel I found out I did not have a shower curtain.  And that is very bad.  So when me and Alyssa went downstairs for dinner we told Debi and a guy came to our room and put it up for us.  But he put it up wrong.  So we had to fix it for him.  So I took my shower first and I fell inside the tub I slipped on soap or shampoo.  Kade Stevens

Our shower was haunted - the water turned freezing then steaming.  It was really funny.  Amanda Fuentes

Then Karissa, Sam, Brittany and I had tea together.  Brittany almost burned herself.  But she did not.  Then to dinner. Abby Satterfield

We made a little tea and then later found out we were not supposed to.  Ooopps!  Samantha Lau

Waiting for room assignments

Getting in line for the buffet at Jenny's Restaurant
The restaurant at the hotel was called Jenny's Restaurant, like my name!  Jennifer Mitchell

The meal at the hotel was very nice.  It was more like a buffet, rather than a menu, sit down and wait for your food type meal.  I liked it a lot.  They had some very good potatoes and ham.  Samantha Sleadd

I had lots and lots of yummy potatoes.  Catherine Weber

We had a three part dinner which included a soup that tasted very good, a main course where you had a lot to choose from - chicken, ham, potatoes, gravy and many other things.  For dessert we also had choices - chocolate cake, apple pie, and cheese cake.  Lori Kreger
