By now it was gone 8am and the inversion was already clearing from the north end of the lake revealing Bowness in all its tacky glory. (Sorry, I love the Lake District but have a hate/ hate relationship with Bowness. It’s just another tourist town with the same old shops and I simply can’t see the appeal it holds for the gazillions of tourists who pack its streets every weekend. Anyway, I digress...)
Unable to quite believe our luck we took a couple of shots near the car park before the short hike up Gummer’s How. We were still very stiff and sore from our 7 hour marathon on Wetherlam the day before so it’s a testament to how gorgeous the views were that we barely noticed the pain. At least not immediately, I certainly noticed it once we were sat at the top, but it’s amazing the effect a pre breakfast aperitif of ibuprofen and coffee can have.
