A winter's walk around Loweswater

I was working in Keswick today . . . trust me to have to work when the weather is so beautiful.

Ann was at home and took the opportunity to walk the dogs locally in the fresh snow.

The sun is out and everything looks like a Christmas Winter Wonderland.

Even the work place looks nice as I take a short walk around Keswick at lunch time.

The Keswick Co-op with a brilliantly sun lit Skiddaw behind.

Down in Hope Park . . . golf is on . . . weather permitting.
. . . but not today !

Someone is enjoying a family picnic in the park though . . . good for them.

They even brought their own tree decorations by the look of it.

Meanwhile . . . back home in Loweswater . . .

The dogs enjoying the morning sunshine . . .
. . . bemused at why the grass has changed colour.

A dog's eye view of Low Fell from the garden.

High wispy clouds over Whiteside are the only ones in the sky.

There are a few creeping over the hills this morning

as the summit of Hen Comb appears to be growing a Father Christmas beard !

Time to fill the bird table again as the nuts and seeds disappear quickly in this weather.

Chance for a local walk so Ann and the dogs crossed the local fields towards Foulsyke House.

Snow covered fields as far as the eye can see.

Gavel, Black Crag, Blake and Carling Knott and the ridge to Burnbank, collectively known as the Loweswater fells.

Our classic view looking south down the length of Crummock Water.

The high fells of Fleetwith Pike and Great Gable are glistening in the sunshine at the far end.

Scale Hill cottages, with Whiteside, Dodd and Swinside leading off down Lorton Valley.

The Lord and Lady of Loweswater.

Ann walked over to Loweswater to see the meadows that Nicole and I had seen on Monday.

Walking back to the cottage the view down past the village hall was stunning.

" I bet you would have loved to have seen this " was the comment when I arrived home.
