Monday Morning on Windermere

One September sometime ago, along with some friends we all hired a boat on Lake Windermere in The lake District.

I remember very well waking up on the first Monday morning, we had arrived late Saturday afternoon after a long drive up from north London. It had started to rain the moment we got out of the car and continued all of the day Sunday.

In a small boat you can hear every drop of rain but I remember waking on the Monday morning only to the sound of gulls and other birds.

I opened the door of the boat and this is the view I got, early morning mist still sitting on the surface of the lake but the sun was burning it’s way slowly through. The rest of the week was one of the best September weeks, weather wise – that you could have wished for.

Sailing On lake Windermere, well it’s is just one of the best holidays you can have.

  8. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all.

    Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this
    blog could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!
