Lakes District

A weekend drive through the Lakes District in January. The fog came and went whimsically. The Lakes District is a favorite walking area for Brits. Even though it's still nippy, we saw hundreds (literally) of hikers.

Driving north from Ulverston to Coniston to Ambleside.

Coniston Water, looking north

It's good to know you can post your mail even here, in the middle of NOWHERE.

Church steeple and lawn bowling weathervane

Reflection in brook

Sheila's Cottage - excellent soup and tea

Tower House and a public well

Then northwest from Ambleside to Keswick (ignore the "w": "Kezzick")

With similar colors and values in sky and snow, the snow looks like holes in the mountain with sky poking through.
