Recent photos of and around Lake Windermere

I went walking with Hubby and Zack by Lake Windermere on Thursday late in the afternoon. It had been a bright sunny day, and lingering rays of sunshine still graced the Lake, its environs, and the lakeshore. It was relaxing walking from Bowness Pier to Ferry Nab via Cockshott Point. And here are some photos I took during our walk, which I hope you will enjoy.

Both Man and beast appreciate the tranquillity of the Lake and its surroundings, particularly at this time of day in late Winter.

The circular route around Cockshott Point bypasses the best known island on Windermere: Belle Isle, the largest and only inhabited island in the Lake.

Sheep, the quintessential four-footed creature of the Lake District, must needs grace the shores of Windermere – of course. We walked past these well-fed ewes in fields a stone’s throw from the Lake.

Finally, as we walked back, we saw a lone golfer  – see if you can spot him in the photo below – on the links, and a couple also turning for home.

Do come and join us in the Lake District National Park for a late Winter or early Spring break. We still have B&B accommodation available during the Easter weekend and holidays, including last minute discounts – and we look forward to welcoming you all.
