The Lake District floods
Today was more than just an ordinary journey to our Love the Lakes shop in Bowness, it was quite difficult just getting there after all the rain over the last day or two which made some of the roads only passable with care and some large tailbacks. The south Lakes certainly didn’t get as much rain as seen in Cockermouth and Keswick but it certainly got a lot more than usual. Last year during the floods in October it was said that it was the highest Windermere has been in living memory and that we would never see it like that again. This year, however, it was even worse. The following photos were simply taken at stops during our journey today.
