Day Tour of English Lake District
This evening, I am reprising a private tour from 2017.
Our target was Ambleside which we approached via the banks of Ullswater and the Kirkstone Pass. Latter is high elevation and due to adverse weather, we were in cloud for latter part of the trip with attendant poor visibility.
The Lake District is characterised by hills, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, many sheep and dry-stone boundary walls.
Upon arrival at Ambleside we availed of a pub lunch followed by a short walk around the town entailing an encounter with a (tame) Eurasian Eagle Owl.
Next, we moved on to our next destination of York in northern England. En-route we came across a Highland Cow which afforded another photo-opportunity.
Finally, after delays on the road due to construction work, we arrived at our lodgings in York at 6.30 pm.
Tomorrow, we explore York.
