Trying to capture some of the gorgeous autumnal colours, we splashed around dodging raindrops for most of the time. You can never be quite certain of the friendly welcome you will get at the Wordsworth Hotel. It's always friendly...but the extent of the friendliness afforded on each occasion is difficult to pre-judge. This time they were friendly AND they'd lit a fire.
On Saturday there was time to visit the gingerbread shop and re-stock.
Then it was off on the bus to the pretty township of Hawkshead and then tea and cake in the Minstrel's Tea Room. Mind your head going in to the gents toilet here - unless you're one of the male leads in Game of Thrones then you might just get away with it.
That's a shot along one of the pretty streets in Hawkshead.
A bus change in Ambleside and we were back in Grasmere in time to walk up to Allan Bank...
On Sunday morning there was time for a walk around the lake before heading home - the M6 was blocked in both directions so it took a bit longer than expected!
