Easter Sunday 12th April 2009

Around the Lake District

It was another fantastic day today, very warm and very busy here in the Lakes. We were out and about early so took the opportunity to get some beautiful views on a small tour of the southern Lakes.

After Tarn Hows we went to Grasmere...

Then it was down to Fell Foot at the southern end of Windermere where Connie took part in an Easter Egg treasure hunt...along with lots and lots of other people out enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

A beautiful day enjoyed by all the visitors.

Later update...the evening was too nice to miss out on a walk with the dogs up to Birkrigg Common near Ulverston...

Casper, Connie and Angus enjoy the evening sunshine.

Poor old Angus has congestive heart condition so he tires really easily these days.
