No more snow during the night, so after yesterday’s thaw all that remains is snow on the higher peaks and a rather grey day for us. As it is our last day here (and in England!) I had a few bits to do so we didn’t venture far. We found parking in Pooley Bridge, a buzzy little village at the top of Ullswater, plenty of pubs, hotels and a few shops and walked along the lakeside footpath.
For a mile or so the footpath was lakeside, with plenty of space for Poppydog to run and splash around but then the footpath ended and we joined an adjacent lane slightly away from the shore to continue our walk. We arrived at Sharrow Bay and enjoyed a play on the little stone beach.
This was to be our turning point for our 5.5 mile walk today and followed the lanes through farmland scattered with some pretty huge campsites (not the place to be at the height of the season, for sure!) and of course lots of sheep, back to Pooley Bridge.
Two thoughts of the day:
Nodded off when we got back on site, so all the little jobs I had planned? Tomorrow’s another day!
Very excited for the next stage in our journey – Scotland 🏴
