This is my 3rd blog this week and brings my blog diary up to date. Last week we had 6 glorious day in the English Lake District, we stayed in Coniston at the Caravan Club Site at Coniston Coppice it's just had a £3,500,000 refit and what a good job they've made of it.The six warm sunny days we had was the only warm sunny weather we've had this summer we missed the warm spell in June because we were in the Outer Hebrides where the weather was much cooler and fresher.
The following photos are just a glimpse of the area we explored in this lovely corner of the Lake District.
With all the settled warm weather we never wore a coat and that's very unusual for the Lakes.
To the left of the summit of Dow Cragg you can just make out the outline of the Isle Of Man below the distant line of cumulus clouds
Retracing our steps back to Swirl How with Coniston Old Man in the distance
Finally a bike ride following Route 37 on the quite lanes and more challenging tracks from Coniston through Skelwith Fold, Elterwater,Little Langdale and back through the quarries of Tilberthwaite.
