Winter Sun at Bassenthwaite Lake

Winter Sun at Bassenthwaite Lake

The weather here today, in North West England, was cold, wet and miserable.

I’m posting these pictures to remind myself that the sun does shine in winter…. just not today!

These photographs are from our last trip to the Lake District of 2016 in November when we stayed on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake.

It is the only body of water in the Lake District to use the word “lake” in its name, all the others being “waters” (for example, Derwentwater), “meres” (for example, Windermere) or “tarns” (for example, Dock Tarn). – Wikipedia

As soon as the clocks change to British Summertime to give an extra hour of light at the end of the day, our trips up to the Lake District start again.

British Summertime starts on Sunday 26th March. First hotel booked for 27th March. We don’t hang about to let the grass grow under our feet!

Speaking of grass……

Here’s  an alpaca grazing in the grounds of our hotel. The hotel has a small flock( or is it herd?). I don’t know if this one was curious to inspect us or if he was hoping we had whatever titbits alpacas enjoy eating. We didn’t have anything for him so after giving us the once or twice over, he wandered off.
