Lake District Part 2: Hiking

Today we started early with a full English breakfast before beginning our hike around the perimeter of the lake.

Walking around the Derwent Water Lake

It rained for most of the day, so we purchased an umbrella before setting out.  We hiked up to a lookout point (a small mountain) for some incredible views of the town, lake, and valley.

Tomorrow we are heading up to Edinburgh. We are both pretty exhausted from the ~10 mile hike so I think we’re calling it a day. The next place doesn’t have free wifi, so I’m unsure when the next post will be.
