Rydal Water, The Lake District.


Came up here for a walk today - one of the smallest, but also most beautiful of the lakes.


It was a grey, damp day and there weren't many people around. Usually in August this place would be full of tourists getting the 'Wordsworth Experience' , but we had it pretty much to ourselves most of the time on the paths winding across the hillsides and round the lake, including the 'Coffin Path' ...


The rain showers just added to the feeling of peace and freedom to wander without having to worry about being anywhere at any particular time ...


Late in the day, the sun began to shine ... a perfect ending to a good mind-clearing day.


And now I'm going to bed for a long, long sleep ...
