Back to the Lake District

A few days in Grasmere are always welcome. The gingerbread shop is always on the itinerary:

That's directly opposite the National Trust shop:

The chaffinches and great tits visiting the feeder outside the front door wouldn't keep still long enough for me to get a click. 

Baldry's Tea Room is cosy yet roomy, pretty yet not twee, friendly yet not overbearing and good value for money. They also serve up killer toasted tea cakes and the option of more teas than I can list out here.

A return visit to a soggy Wordsworth's Daffodil Garden after a couple of days heavy rain:

Then a walk around the lake - the rain kept away and the sun almost threatened to breakthrough a couple of times.

The light here always surprises:

And the views across the lake, back towards the village, make the walk even more worth while:ย
