... a short tour of the middle lake.
Day 2. Another morning on the lake. This time to Lakeside and back. Very pleasant - and oh! what a beautiful day. We came home and changed to our shorts - first time in 3 weeks. Dressed in summery attire we took off to Orrest Head where we had a panoramic view of the lake. It was almost as good as Bariloche, Argentina.

Covering a range of different landscapes, from riverside, to lakeside, to waterfalls and ...
... the main street, had the obligatory coffee stop, then headed off to Grasmere, which lived up to its claim of being a very pretty village. We tried in vain to find the start of a recommended walk, but ended up doing our own version. It was still cold, but at least it wasn't raining. Leaving Grasmere we headed back towards Windermere, stopping off at the Holehird Gardens on the way. The gardens were amazing, even though it wasn't sunny. We spent a long time wandering ...
