Lakeland longings 3 - From the Watendlath Road

Just lately, I've been browsing Facebook photos of Mark up in the Lakes and having to work hard to suppress feelings of insane jealousy, so I thought I'd look back at my last Lake District holiday and make you feel jealous too. After all, a jealousy shared is a jealousy halved. Yes?

As the title suggests, this view is taken from the Watendlath Road and looks down over Derwent Water towards Keswick. The bulk of Skiddaw can be seen to the right and, in the far distance, the long ribbon of Bassenthwaite Lake.


  1. Absolutely Beautiful !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. This looks like a beautiful lake area. It's so nice to reminisce about where we have traveled. There is so much to see in the world!

  3. Gorgeous! I love how remote it all looks and feels. Again, far from the madding crowd!
