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 !

Arboreal silhouette.

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.

Full power !
Perhaps a new ferry service is on the cards ?

I help Thomas get the hang of the controls.

[ When it is driving towards you

you need to work the controls

the other way round.]

Harry looks sad that his stone

has sunk into the lake !

Moving on round the shore of Crummock Water, we get a view of the pump house through the trees.

Whiteside reflections
Perfect Grasmoor

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.
