Our plan had been to drive down the length of Windermere, but as we got closer and the inevitable traffic built up, Pat asked "is this a really good idea today?" so I took the next left and headed inland This is the village of Troutbeck, nestling on ledges in the hills and enjoying spectacular views!
Heading towards Kirkstone pass I spotted this lovely view, and Pat took this cracking shot, just look at the way the light models the hillsides!
And here we are descending Kirkstone Pass, once again the lighting was magnificent and Pat has taken a fine shot
Ullswater next and here it was quieter than expected, there were few craft out there today
As you can see here, not a sail in sight!
We shopped in Penrith and headed back to camp, Pat rested and I went for a walk as far as the Chinese Bridge,
