Sophie Bear
Lake District at Christmas  


Cute furry bear



Sophie goes away for Christmas ...

Sophie is very excited today because it's nearly Christmas and she is going with Mrs Keen to visit her Grandma, Nanny Keen, in the Lake District. Sophie has got up early and was bouncing on Mrs Keen's bed to wake her up. "Come on, are we going yet?".

Once Mrs Keen was up and both she and Sophie were dressed they loaded up the car and set off. Because it's Christmas it was very very cold and you can see how frozen the car was!

Can you see Sophie sitting in the back? She's kept her coat on because it's so cold!


Sophie's Nanny was staying in the Lake District over Christmas. The Lake District is very pretty but also very hilly! First they had to go uphill ...


p.s. - the car was only backed up into this parking space for the photo. It didn't actually go offroad!

Downhill offroad driving with Land Rover!

...then downhill!

Sophie didn't like it and began to feel travel sick!


Luckily they were nearly there.

The place they were staying was very pretty with lots of wooden houses around a lake. Across the lake was a swimming pool and restaurant!

Sophie didn't sit down for long before she wanted to jump up and explore. Mrs Keen put her coat back on and they went for a walk.


There was a pretty little bridge over a river but Sophie wanted to know if the hotel had any chocolate - greedy bear!



They went for a little walk up the hill and found a very pretty view - look at it! What can you see? (You can click on it to see a bigger version)

Then they walked down to the lake. The sun came out - what a pretty view. You'd never guess it was Christmas. ("Unless you were there", says Sophie, " - my fur was freezing!")
