As promised in my previous post I was going to write about our round-the-lake walks. Buttermere Lake and Crummock Water are connected by a stream and almost touching one another. But Crummock Water is at least double the size so we rather picked Buttermere Lake for a walk.
I've been quiet for a while now. It's been mostly because of the recent heatwave in the UK. In June and July I don't really go walking in the morning as the sunrise is too early. But for an evening walk the temperature was always too hot. Beside this all the vegetation literally dried out so there is not much green tones left except the leaves on the trees. Fortunately this is holiday time and we planned this year to visit the Lake District. I was really looking forward to it and it did not disappoint us.
I woke up early on Monday morning as nice clear sky was promised by the weather forecast. I picked the location from my previous photo walk. It's a very nice view from the footpath running along the ridge about 20 minutes walk from the village.
Usually when I walk in the early morning I'm suffering from wet shoes because of the dew. But so far we haven't experienced much rain this summer and the last couple of weeks has been quite warm. So this time my shoes stayed dry during my walk.
We moved to Hook Norton only a couple of months ago so I don't really know the area around the village. These walks help me to explore the surroundings and also refill my energy level to the maximum.
