I may have got the racing bug after my trip to Ascot earlier this month! My mum suggested we took visiting family to the Cartmel races as we had never been. So we packed another picnic and headed off this morning, being newbies we didn't leave quite early enough to park on site but it wasn't a huge walk.
The day was well kitted out for families and once we had established our base camp near the rails:
The children dragged us over to the funfair:
My daughter is so brave she even went on the X-treme twice:
And of course we had 7 races to watch both hurdles and steeplechase:
My son also loved walking in the woods on the far side of the race track:
It was a great day though my daughter got very upset when a horse fell and the screens came out. Luckily a few minutes later the horse was back on its own feet!
