We’ve just got back from a short trip to the Lake District. I first visited that area as a child but it’s years since I had been there, I was put off by the crowds when we took our own kids to Keswick. It was so packed with people you could hardly see the lake. It didn’t seem too busy this time, mind you we avoided Keswick.
Anyway, just a quick one tonight as I haven’t sorted through all the photos. If you look carefully at this one you can see that there is a snowy hill/mountain just peeking (peaking) up behind the green ones. The higher hills were still well covered with snow. Unfortunately there aren’t that many places to stop the car to take photos. The more rural roads still had about three feet of snow by the sides of them.
I took this photo on the road walking down from Allan Bank, which was once William Wordsworth’s home, it sits in a wonderful setting above Grasmere, a short walk from the village. More of that tomorrow!
