A Stroll by Derwentwater (yesterday 25th June 2010)

On our way through we had left cloudy, yet blue skies whilst passing by Grasmere and Rydal, yet as soon as we had started to climb at Dunmail Raise, the sky darkened and at times threatening rain clouds appeared... but we never saw any rain, it remained a most pleasant day. Even on our retreat back home, once having left behind Dunmail, and passing through by the lower lakes, the blue skies began to appear more frequent again.
