... 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.

Back on the bike we headed ...
... to Windermere, picked up the washing which was being done at the local laundrette (a real bonus), and booked back into The Westboune. A cruise on the lake was next on the agenda, so it was back down the hill to catch the Blue Cruise - 45 minutes around the lake taking in lots of interesting and scenic places.
