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
Happy sheep
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
