Glorious weather, beautiful countryside, and horrible traffic

There was a meeting of North West Region Conservatives in Kendal this morning so I drove from Whitehaven to Kendal (and back after the meeting). It was a very useful and constructive meeting.

The journey was also a perfect illustration of the best and worst things about living in Cumbria. A drive in glorious weather through some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. And when they were not behind the wheel of a car, everyone I interacted with was polite, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Slightly spoilt by traffic, particularly where there are roadworks and temporary traffic lights between Kendal and Ambleside.

If you are travelling through Cumbria and have multiple routes available to you, I would recommend avoiding the A591 at the moment, particularly the stretch between Kendal and Windermere.
