Loweswater Lake

It rained almost all of yesterday, but we still managed to get out for a decent walk, this time alongside Loweswater Lake which is one of the smaller lakes up here, but in a pretty setting, almost joined to the next lake, Crummock Water.

The walk we took takes you along a good path which lies about half way up the ridge overlooking Loweswater, eventually descending to a farm at the end of the lake, then back along the lakeside, past the National Trust bothy and the rowing boats for hire, which looked rather forlorn in this weather. We saw very few other people walking today, not surprisingly. The tops of the hills were hidden in cloud a lot of the time, but in true Lake District fashion they would suddenly clear, yielding glorious views.

Slightly annoyed to discover that my supposedly waterproof Berghaus jacket, isn't. You discover the meaning of 'waterproof' in this rain!
