After yesterdays big car journey we chose not use the car at all today.
The fine weather is getting repetitive . . . we didn't take waterproof coats either !
The girls make their way down to the lake.
Flat calm and almost perfect reflections . . . except for those caused by dogs and ducks.
Rannerdale Knotts across the lake.
We stop at the beach for a little light entertainment.
Gareth checks out the hovercraft controls.
Moving on round the shore of Crummock Water, we get a view of the pump house through the trees.
Grasmoor Direct . . . please invert the screen to see the photo as taken.
With the dogs distracted elsewhere the reflections are stunning.
Spoke too soon - you'll have to call it art instead.
Paula waits for the others to catch up as we leave the lake and make our way back home.
The appropriately named Grasmoor House.
