22nd Mar 08 - Howtown to Pooley Bridge
It was a very cold day with icy winds. We board the boat at Glenridding at the top of Ullswater in a blizzard. But by the time we got off at Howtown the sun had come out - although the wind chill was still minus-something.
Walked about 6 miles to Pooley Bridge and caught the bus back.

|Well, who could fail to admire a view like that?|
