LAKELAND 2010 DAY two

As you can see a wet, wet start. But, as they say, there is no such thing as inappropriate weather, just innappropriate clothing !!

That's where we are heading. First up a fell called Boardale Hause.

A quick look back to Ullswater from Boaredale Hause, look at the clouds in the distance.


Posing on top of Boaredale Hause.







Looking down to Brothers Water down to the right.


After climbing up the Hause it's onto Angle Tarn Peaks. Then a cooling swim in Angle Tarn. With it's two islets makes it unusual in Lakeland and one of the best.

Looking down Martindale Valley that far ridge dusted in cloud is where we are heading. HIGH STREET.


So named because the Romans built a road there. Here i am in front of Kidsty Pike, the highest point of the coast to coast walk i did last year.





But this year, instead of going over the top of Kidsty Pike and out of Lakeland, it's a left turn and on High Street. As you can see a flat hill top, you can see why the Romans chose this ridge to build a road.




The intrepid explorers.......... "I KNOW WHERE WE ARE" !!!


At the end of High Street this is where we are heading, Pooley Bridge, at the opposite end of Ullswater to Glenridding
At Pooley Bridge it's a steamer journey to Glenridding aboard the majestic "Lady of the Lake" originally launched in 1877
