Another pass – another day of low clouds – the view is supposed to be nice on Kirkstone Pass on the way to Glenridding. I left my lovely cottage in Little Langdale and was on my way to my next stop and base up north – Ullswater.

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District. My first stop was Glenridding on the south side of the lake to board one of the steam boats.

I took a short route from Glenridding to Howtown Pier and back – I had planned to do a little walk around Howtown but as soon as we were on the boat rain started to pour down. Cats and dogs! So I just took shelter at the pier. The trip was still very lovely – the clouds added some extra drama!

The landscape is quite different from the rest of the Lake District, higher mountains and somehow rougher.

Ullswater itself is of course the main attraction. Surrounded by gently rolling countryside at the northern end around Pooley Bridge, a trip south down the lakeshore gives way to sheer fellsides that drop away into the water below, culminating in the majesty of England’s third highest mountain, Helvellyn.

Back in Glenridding, the rain had stopped (at least for the moment – it was quite a wet day) and I made my way around the lake to my hotel in Pooley Bridge to enjoy a little walk along the shore.

And to do a little photo shoot with Emer who didn´t mind the rain at all!
