A Day at Pemberly and Pemberly
We stopped to grab food at a farm store on our way to the Pemberly used in the old Pride and Prejudice. On our way I pretty much decided that I need to live in the English country. It is so so so Beautiful! There are cows and sheep everywhere! It is green and has all these rock walls dividing the land. For some reason I am just in love with cows, sheep and horses. Oh and the cutest little baby goats were playing and jumping; it was one of the cutest animal moments I have ever had.
We got to Lyme Park the back way thanks to our GPS that I would name but I don’t think she is deserving of one at this point in time. We may be getting rid of her after this trip and I am pretty sure it is the same thing as pets; you don’t want to name an animal you know you aren’t going to keep. Anyways we asked a lady walking by and she said we needed to go back the way we came and take a different road. We finally found it and ran into the entrance only to find out from the gift shop lady that they were already closing it down. We went to the estate office and asked if there was anyway we could see any part of it so she took us through a part of it really quick and I got video before they told me we were not allowed. We got to see the lake that Darcy swims in and the front of the house were the carriages arrived. I loved it! It was so fun being there and imagining what it was like. We are now driving in the car with some extra time in the day not wanting to be spent at the hotel, so we are looking for a Top Shop and Primark. It is too bad all the museums and things close at 5pm, it really makes for a short day. We found a Primark but didn’t make it to Top Shop before it closed. We stopped at Tesco on the way to the hotel to get the meal deal for dinner and some yogurt, bread, nutella and things for snacks. The hotel doesn’t have free internet yet again. I don’t understand how they wouldn’t when I stayed in hostels in Ireland with internet. We watched a little TV. Pretty much the end of a dumb movie with Sandra Bullock were she knows her husband is going to die and tries to prevent it but ends up causing it.
