These images were taken during a visit to the Lake district boat museum some years back, I have been scanning a lot of my old films and came across these as part of a set that I will use in full at some point, For the moment however these two images show one of histories great boats used to set world water speed records….

Rowing the waters

If you do go to Lake windermere then rowing on the lake on a good day is one thing you will never forget doing!

Rowing Boats

Rowing boats are available from the wooden huts to the right of Bowness promenade and from Waterhead (Ambleside). Rowing Boats are £13.00 for 1 or 2 adults and children under 16 are free.

They are open in the summer every day from 9.00am.

This photo was taken one morning at a small bay on lake windermere in the lake district national park, Windermere is some 18km long and at it widest some 2km wide. Its one of the most beautiful places I know and if you can spend sometime you will find many wonderful location just to set and read and study the wildlife or nature it offers.

Even just to sit and look at these two boats moving slowly in the water is something I will always remember.

So then Windermere and two boats and one cleared out mind!
