As I headed towards Bowness alongside Windermere I could see the mist was hanging over the lake as so often happens on these cooler mornings and Coniston was similarly attired under mist too when I passed it earlier. I headed up to Wansfell under glorious sunshine for a great view of the lake and wasn’t disappointed – it was beautiful up there this morning, very quiet and tranquil.
