Wordsworth wandering

Our walk to Grassmere was only about 15 kilometers. It was so beautiful, so scenic but a hard slog too. The climb was quite daunting but really lifted the spirits.

We had a much deserved rest day in Grassmere. It was a change of pace to play tourist, taking the bus around to the different villages, a boat ride on Lake Windermere and gingerbread tasting!

Our path then continued on to Patterdale village. The evening ale was imbibed at the White Lion Inn. While the hike was only 12km, it was a challenging and hot endeavor made sweeter by the very scenic countryside.
