Decided on a trip to Ullswater today ( yes I know - again - but I do love this place )
Stopped at Glencoyne for one of my favourite lake views.

Parked up by the pier at Glenridding to find people on the water - I liked the red of the sails against the green mountains.

Walked through Patterdale and backtracked along the beck where I was able to get into the middle of the water with some careful treading on the stones.

And along the footpath found the bees rather busy on the opening thistles.
