Day 8: Keswick

It was raining in the morning, so we decided to have a museum day. First was a visit to the pencil museum, which would have been a waste of money (it's basically the size of a tiny house), but the kids loved spending a lot of time drawing there, and they introduced us to the water color pencils, which are kinda neat: you use the color pencil and then smear a bit of water in it to get a watercolor effect without the mess.

It was still raining when we left the pencil museum, so we decided to go to the The Puzzling Place, which turned out to be great fun, full of optical illusions. The kids enjoyed the various illusions especially the tilted room, and if nothing else we got a number of cool photos out of it.



We ended up buying take out pizza for dinner and then Bowen and I swam in the hotel swimming pool.
