We had a drive up to Grasmere yesterday, with dogs.
It was pretty busy in and around the village. Our usual car park was packed -- and not flooded as it was the last time we went there!
Beginning at Dove Cottage we walked a circular route passing Grasmere lake and Rydal Water -- about three hours in all and not too demanding.
The trees are just coming to life as seen in mists of green and blossom on some trees but the shapes of branches still dominated the treescapes.
Not shown in the photos but of course being this time of year in The Lakes we saw lots of extremely cute lambs -- definitely off the menu for all of us!
