A stroll in the sun on the west shore of Windermere, remarkably quiet, pure magic. I played and fished here on so many summer evenings after school. Looking back to those days we never knew how lucky we were, I'm sure we didn't appreciate the amazing scenery all around us. I now realise how fortunate I've been to have lived within 30 miles of here all my life, it's part of what makes me who I am. Sounds a bit corny when I see it in print but thats exactly how I felt as we walked beside the lake this afternoon.
