4th Nov 12 - Orrest Head to Waterhead
Gloriously sunny start to the day. Took taxi to Windermere and climbed to Orrest Head, walked the 8 miles via Troutbeck to Waterhead and caught the boat back.
|The view that inspired Alfred Wainwright
|It was certainly 'inspiring' today. The inversion was spectacular with Windermere just poking out of the clouds below
|The view over the town of Windermere still in the clouds
|View to Windermere and snow covered Langdales beyond
|The sheepfold on Robin Lane
|Perhaps my favourite view of the curved track to High Skelghyll
|Windermere shot into the sun
|Fairfield Horseshoe from the boat
|Ill Bell and High Street topped with snow
|Steam launch takes a turn around Windermere. And why not on a day like today!
|Bowness as we came into the jetty
|Finally, I planted up the winter pots on our balcony
