Believe it or not, this is still Cumbria but I've changed visit. The next series of posts are photographs which were taken exactly one week ago today, when Ben went up there for an interview.
There was less snow around than I expected., most of it seeming to have fallen down the east side of the UK, but this photo of Lakeside (on the south west shore of Windermere) still has a vaguely Alpine feel to it.
The boats run trips up and down the lake. It's a while since we've done the journey, but it's definitely worth buying a ticket for the complete round trip because you can make a full day of it, stopping off at various locations around the lake.
From memory, there are three boats; Swan, Teal and Tern. I think the bigger of the two moored here is Swan.
The photo is taken from Fell Foot, a National Trust property on the southern tip of the lake. We had hoped to call in for a coffee but it was closed due to icy conditions.
