Just half a day available today, so a stroll round Rydal Water was just the ticket.
|Having parked near Rydal Mount we set out along the "Coffin Road"|
|Here, further along the "Coffin Road" the view over the lake opens up. We were surprised to see that the lake was a sludgy brown colour, a result of the huge quantities of silt washed in during the recent storms.|
|A dusting of snow on Wansfell, not a breath of wind today so the mist was hanging above the valley.|
|Back to the car via White Moss and the multi-use track on the South side of the lake.|
Another view of the "sludgy" water, very unusual here in the lakes...Brown rivers,yes....Brown Lakes, No!
So only a short walk, but the fresh air is always welcome after a week in the office.
