Looks like a super way to spend a weekend! x


Happy Birthday and what a wonderful way to celebrate. It looks just beautiful. Love the animal park. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you had such a lovely birthday weekend. It all seemed so familiar as, as a fairly new devotee (possibly stalker😉) of your blog I was only reading of your first visit to the Arnside youth hostel the other night. Your photo's really capture the spirit of the Lakes. Hopefully now you have fully recovered from yarndale and are ready for the steady build up to (dare I say it) Cristmas x


Oh what a lovely weekend.. happy birthday!

May I very humbly say that that is a peacock, not a macaw.


The beach looked so lovely and large in the photos, which are great, as usual! Happy Birthday!


Happy birthday! This look like such a nice way to celebrate with your family.


Lovely pictures glad you had a wonderful time.

Oh!...the green fields.. the big sky and beach, beautiful! looks like a great birthday get-away. I see you found another feather for your collection too. :) Nothing like the zoo trips, making wonderful memories. (BTW, the fencing you mentioned is called chain link fence here in the US.)Happy week!


Thank you for sharing your photos. I will probably not see your country with my own eyes, so the photos are a delight to me. Made me want to plan some sort of birthday getaway for myself!
Blessings on you!


Glad you had a great birthday weekend. I'm starting to be a bit jealous of the fact that my family had a day out at South Lakes Wild Animsl Park without me a few years ago. I shall demand to go next time.


This is near my home, I took my other half last summer when we went to visit my family. We were like children, it is truly an amazing park. A cheeky little lemur stole some of my grapes by sneaking up on our picnic! I can't wait to have children so it is acceptable to go on days out like this more.

I have just started a blog (http://sophiesewandsew.blogspot.co.uk/) after being inspired by blogs like yours, I taught myself to knit less than a year ago and to crochet a few weeks ago. Thankyou for being so creative! xx


What a lovely Birthday Weekend. It looks perfect. Thank you for sharing.

What a fabulous birthday weekend! Isn't it lovely to find somewhere that's so new and exciting in a place that you choose to go to because it's familiar? Thanks for taking the penguin photo - I LOVE penguins and they looked like they were very happy ones! Glad you had a great time - Yarndale must feel like a long time ago now! xx

We were camping at Silverdale in the summer, such a great cove to explore and the children loved it. Chips from Arnside chippy eaten on the pier while watching the tide race is were another highlight.


Oh what a great zoo, I so enjoyed it!AriadnefromGreece!


Love this post Lucy, as it's my part of the world! My daughter has just had an interview at the animal park, and we are waiting to hear if she is to be an elf at Christmas! Lovely pictures as always

Lucy thank you for the inspiration and the love you spread, I am glad you had a happy birthday weekend with your dear family. Love from Adriana, Uruguay, South América


So glad that you had such a lovely birthday, Lucy! The animal park looked amazing, and I wonder if there is something like that here in the US.... ;)

Thank you for sharing your weekend, the hostel looks amazing as did the animal park.

Elaine Lewis

Yey you came to what we like to call 'our' zoo. We live near by. If you should be over again between November and February entrance to the park is free, which brings people to the zoo and who hopefully spend money in the restaurant and shop. It's also going to get a bit bigger with more species of animals, we love it and are thoroughly excited!
Glad you had a lovely birthday and weekend jolly.

Claire C

How lovely to have a little mini-break for your birthday after all the hard work. So glad you had a lovely weekend and the weather was kind! Claire x

Having left England for sunnier skies many centuries ago(that's the way it feels anyway )I thoroughly enjoyed your trip as if I had been there myself.You bring me back once more to the holidays of my childhood where in this same area I remember green hills still lakes and bubbling streams and rivers.Thanks so much for sharing.

Anne Marie

Lovely Arnside, Lucy. It's a. While since I have been but love it. Did you ever go to Gibraltar Point? the pictures at wildlife park are stunning. I see your crochet mitts made an appearance!


Glad you enjoyed your birthday weekend. The animal park sounds fabulous, it's definitely going on my list of places to visit.
