It's hard to believe that it was only 15 months ago that I visited the Lake District for the very first time. We camped at Troutbeck near Ullswater then moved onto Grange at the foot of Derwent, then Ambleside for a few days before heading down to Meathop near Grange-over-Sands, now just a 5 minute drive from where we live. So how did it happen? Well, here's an account of my first 2 lakes and my first 3 fells - all big names, though I didn't really appreciate that at the time.

So there you have it - how I "fell" for the Lake District - and you can't really blame me, can you?
