Our daughter and grand daughter came over to visit for a few days

and we took the opportunity to visit the lake on their first afternoon here.

The evening before we had also entertained Helmut who had stayed overnight at the end of his Lakes holiday.

Growing up !

Ann, Paula and Abi pause for a photo on the way to the lake.

It's a great period of summer like weather . . . at last !

It's looking grey up there but the clarity of the air today is wonderful.

Nearly June now and the lambs have grown fast . . . they're getting quite grown up too.

Rannerdale Knotts and Haystacks at the apparent head of the lake.

Is anyone going to play ?

Just a stick or a stone will do !

Ready . . . ?

Abi on the rock at the end of the beach.

" As pleased as Punch "
Ok . . .you want me in too ?

Sing along . . . " Grandpa, Grandpa . . . we love you "

Must make sure she makes it back without falling in the water otherwise I'm in trouble. [ photo by Paula]

Walking on around the headland.

May on a May afternoon . . . Grasmoor behind.

Walking the wall.

Returning by the "gated road".

The weather this week has been beautifully sunny and clear.

The skies, though not clear, have produced some interesting cloud effects, such as these later in the week.

Morning cloud clearing from the head of the valley.

Evening and the cloud returns.

Pouring down across the folds of Haystacks and through Scarth Gap before evaporating once again to give a clear skies.
