I wish that I could paint a picture for you of what I expected before we went to Windermere. I expected a sad little overcrowded man-made lake, stuffed full of boats and surrounded by greasy spoons. In short, I had no idea that I was about to visit one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England and it is over a mile across at its widest point. It is a ribbon lake formed by glaciers so visitors to the region are treated to hills, mountains, valleys and secondary lakes as well as forests and meadows.
This photo was taken at Bowness-on-Windermere which is where we walked to nearly every day of our stay.
Isn’t it great to be proven wrong?
