Day 6 in the Lakes. Fri 08-Jun-11. Gentle stroll from Ambleside round Rydal Water and Grasmere. Exactly 10 miles in 3.25 hours
We have tried to mix it up with our walks - some countryside, some fells, some coastline and now some lakes.
As our route took us past Dove Cottage into Grasmere village we had to have a look at Wordsworth's grave.
Grasmere - Wordsworth's Grave
Plus buy some "original" gingerbread from the tiniest shop imaginable - previous a school house support by Wordsworth and his sister.
Grasmere - Gingerbread shop
Lunch at Tweedie's Bar and then the return route completed the circumambulation of the two lakes.
Evening was pub food and beer in The Royal Oak, Cartmel, as a practice run for Grant's 50th birthday celebrations on the the Saturday.
