Re: Buttermere

If anyone else decides to go consider the route through Newlands valley, true the road is narrow in places with sharp bends but there are some great views.

Park near the church or on the road it's free but get there early.

@rongtw I agree the Lake District is fantastic, but what about the Yorkshire Dales - or at the other end of the country, the South Downs?

Many people visit but how many really see it ?

Most stick to the main (over crowded) towns, to see the real lake district you need to get up into the fells.

During part of a walk yesterday I went along crinkle crags and passed no more than 15 people, back down in the valley the mistery was solved they were outside the local pubs.

More sense perhaps but seeing less.

We went for a walk in a local forest today (Saturday) it is not generally known to visitors, being off the beaten track.

We saw just two couples all day.

 

Back at the cottage, a BBQ brought lots of village friends together for a nice evening.

We supported the local community during floods a while back, this was repaid in kind today.

A great time was had by all.

 

No one came by car, the food & drinks flowed freely.

All supplied by two local hostelries, including some of their staff, paid for by ourselves.

 

The weather was in our favour too.

 

More activities planned for Monday, and beyond.

Why does Windows10 never offer me that picture to like or dislike when I wake my computer from its sleep?  Just look how clear the water it!

We had a couple of picnics down by the water's edge, great community spirit.

Again, mostly local villagers we knew, but also some friends & family from afar.

 

It really is a beautiful area.

Well worth a visit if you've never been, or even if you have.....

Re: Buttermere

That's an amazing photo.

If I were a betting man (I'm not), I would bet that was taken with an nice SLR camera and not a phone camera. Smiley
