Roadside parking, Loweswater (waterend)

Assuming that everyone parks properly, there is room for quite a few cars along here. This is my prefered starting point for a circuit of Loweswater or a walk onto the Fellbarrow / Low Fell ridge.



Mellbreak, prominent in the centre of the picture, with Carling Knott and Loweswater on the right hand side.

Heading down the lonning between Hudson Place and Loweswater.



Holme Beck, found about midway along the this side of Loweswater.

I sure this is the place where Little Red Riding Hood's Grandmother lives, and even thought there was smoke coming out of the chimney, I think she must have been out.

A view down the lake towards Whiteside, Grasmoor, Whiteless Pike, Robinson and Mellbreak.



Some people just don't know anything about boatmanship do they? If this were my boat, the first thing I'd do is drill a hole in the bottom to stop it filling up with water every time it rains!

The shock of the sun coming out was almost too much for me to cope with as I headed towards Maggie's Bridge. Thankfully I was only doing a short walk this afternoon, because I'm not sure if I could have managed a longer walk in these conditions.

Despite my sarcastic comment above, and the strong wind, it was so nice to finally get some sunshine; brief as it may have been.

Low Fell.
Notice how the bracken is really starting to turn now.

Well this is just typical isn't it? You've never got a dish, a spoon and a carton of cream when you need them!


And from the same spot, looking a little further to the left.
