A beautiful autumnal week for walking in the Lake District. We arrived on the Sunday and checked into Whitbarrow Village. Our apartment was a thoughtfully converted farm building.
Monday we went to checkout Penrith with its lovely sandstone buildings.
In the afternoon we went for a walk with our friend Nigel. Straight out into the beautiful countryside. A circular walk taking in Aira Force.
Lovely babbling brooks...
...that soon turn into serious waterfalls.
Then a segue into calmer, delightful woodlands
Only five miles and the sun had already gone down behind the hills.
