Carlisle Castle

This was definitely an unplanned trip, but one that turned out to be a great time!  We woke on our second day in Scotland, and after an excellent breakfast we set off.  Except we didn't really, because the battery in the rent-a-car had died overnight!  Anyway, to make a long story short, the man they sent out jumped started the car (a Proton ... oof) and we followed him southward into Carlisle England.   It turned out to be exactly where we wanted to be!
