this morning's walk: round Rydal Water

bridge above Rydal Water

looking down Rydal Water as I emerge from the woods

looking towards the head of Rydal Water on a rather gloomy morning

looking into the big cave

looking out of the big cave

reflections in the pool in the cave

looking up Rydal Water with a little cloud on top of Silver How

at the foot of Rydal Water

heron fishing in the River Rothay

the bridge over the Rothay below Rydal Water

the Badger Bar

the front of Rydal Church ..

.. and the church from the back

an attractive cottage nearby

Rydal Mount one of William Wordsworth's houses

the coffin road to Grasmere

Rydal Water from the coffin road

zooming over Rydal Water to the big cave

Rydal Water from White Moss Common

the highest spot on White Moss Common ..

.. and zooming in from there to Helm Crag

a wet seat looking down on Grasmere

Silver How from a farm on the way down to Grasmere
