A Saturday in the Lakes…..

Derwent-Water-&-Skiddaw-from-Lodore-Woods

Derwent Water, Cumbria. 

The English Lake District, in the heart of Cumbria, has so many places where you can just stand and stare.  Here on the cliff slopes on the edge of Lodore Woods, is one of my favourites.  Looking down on Derwent Water and its tiny islands, the mountain of Skiddaw beyond and the town of Keswick nestling below.

On a clear day you can even see, down the valley to the left, to the Solway Firth and the Mountains of Scotland beyond, just visible on the horizon on this lucky day.

Wherever you are, whatever your viewpoint….

Ripples across Derwent Water

Derwent-Water-@-High-Brandlehow,-Cumbria-0732

There had been a storm overnight, but the following day at dawn the only sign of its passing were the ripples over Derwent Water.

Always nice to pause at Brandlehow Jetty whilst waiting for the small Ferry to take us over  to Keswick…..  a truly Cumbrian Lake District experience and always a pleasure

June…… The start of summer proper

Derwent-Water-&-Skiddaw-from-Lodore-Woods

A summer view over Derwent Water in the English Lake District, Cumbria.

(June 1st and it the first day of the meteorological summer)

This view is taken from Lodore Woods by Ashness Bridge.  Skiddaw mountain is to your right with the town of Keswick below.

Not always a peaceful spot,  as it is a great place to take in the view.   However, right now The Lake District National Park are still telling folk not to visit.  There will be many locals who are loving the peace of the surroundings to their homes…..  but of course many more who rely upon the Tourist Industry for their income.  It is going to be tough for them.  Nor can I see any real easing of the situation for some time to come..

No matter where you are….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
