Underneath the dense cloud it was chilly
but the sun soon burned it away this morning leaving conditions sunny
and warm for a short walk at the southern end of Coniston Water. I had
my first outing with some new boots on and will give a full review of
them soon. What I can say is that they were fantastic and will be well
worth checking out...

It was lovely and calm this morning. Further north the
lake was shrouded in mist but was clearing from the southern end.
