early morning tranquillity at Penny Rock ..
.. but very misty so I reject the idea of climbing Loughrigg
the weir at Penny Rock from the north side ..
.. and again from the south side looking up Grasmere
approaching Rydal Water
looking down on Rydal Water
the big cave
water damage on the track down from the cave
still a lot of water about
Rydal Water from the track
looking up Rydal Water with the lakeside path partially flooded
looking back out as the path enters the wood
the boathouse near the foot of Rydal Water
looking up the lake from the tranquil foot of Rydal Water
the outflow from Rydal Water
the bridge over the River Rothay
the bridge from the other side
the summerhouse and falls in the grounds of Rydal Hall
friendly cows in Rydal Park
the gates and lodge at the Ambleside end of Rydal Park
walking back from Keswick to Portinscale a dramatic improvement in the weather - Causey Pike and Barrow mist free
similarly Grisedale Pike ..
.. and Catbells
