One of the advantages of driving by yourself is the chance to explore unplanned spots. The discovery of
"Dove Cottage"...the home of Poet William Wordsworth, happened by chance when we noticed the signage on the way...Set in the beautiful Grasmere Vale , Scotland. Wordsworth came here 1799 along with his sister Dorothy and childhood friend Mary whom he married later. It is here that he wrote some of his wonderful poems...The setting is so beautiful even today, one can imagine how ethereal it would have been two centuries ago. No wonder he was inspired to write the way he did!
