Devoke Water + Muncaster Castle

The next day we went ahead with our original plan of hiking in Devoke Water and visiting Muncaster Castle in the afternoon. But first we decided to brave the steepest road in England.
The start of the path at Devoke Water
The path was very, very muddy ...
... and we had to make quite a few detours. The views were quite lovely, though.
Halfway we reached the river and couldn't find a way to cross it, so we decided to turn back
S. turned out to be quite the little hiker ...

Muncaster Castle is known for its Owl Trust Center, and is an amazing place to spend the day with kids. We arrived just in time to watch the "Meet the birds" event at 2:30 PM, then visited the castle interior. Afterwards we went for some tea and cake at the little tea room at the back of the owl centre where we met the castle owner Mr. Pennington and had a really nice chat with him. We vowed to come back in the Spring to watch the flowers in bloom.
