Breaks in the Lakes

Only 3 days away but how we managed to recharge the batteries a bit mentally. On the other hand, not having had much exercise for a little while we drained the physical ones. Easedale Tarn, Elterwater, The Coffin Route, Rydal Caves and Rydal Water together with Grasmere meant that we had a series of good sleeps! Here’s a few images :-

Christmas in Grasmere

We spent a few days across Christmas at The Wordsworth Hotel, Grasmere and thoroughly enjoyed the break. Nothing too serious in terms of walking but we went round Grasmere and Rydal Water just to keep the cobwebs at bay. There was a distinct difference in the days, firstly sun and lots of cloud and then mist and greyness. Still, that didn’t stop the annual duck race – I think mine is still swimming….Grasmere Ducks away Rydal Water reflection in the mist View over Rydal Water
