It's Perfect & the Largest Natural Lake - Loving Lake District, England!

The first sight of Lake District was nothing but beautiful. Loving building, green valley & nice people.

We hopped in to the bus as planned by our University and traveled from Liverpool to Lake District. I can't really remember how long was it but we did took our sweet time on the way too. ;)


- Town Area at Windermere, Lake District -

Upon arriving Windermere, all of us were excited and were cheering all the way. By looking at those beautiful buildings, it makes us looking forward with the place.

From Wiki:
"The Lake District, also commonly known as The Lakes, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous not only for its lakes and its mountains (or fells) but also for its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets." - Source

Yes, I can assure you with the beautiful lake, the stream and all other scene that we saw back in Year 2008, no wonder Authors of Poetry often write about the Lakes.

 

- The Valley -

The bus left us at the parking space that we have took about 15 minutes walk to the place we were headed to. But before that, the Bus was heading to the upper hill with steep and narrow road (that the bus looks like wanted to ran in to the wall next to the bus) to see the most beautiful scene of Lake District. In fact, our Bus Pilot was unable to drive us up to the hill due to some reason. :( Anyway, it was okay (better than risking our safety) and we continued with the next place.


- Elterwater -

After 15 minutes walk over those green grasses, we arrived at a small steep rocks entrance at Elterwater. We walked down and took some photos for remembrance. Besides, we need to be extra careful of our steps that might cause some wounds if we walk on those rocks.


- Random Shot beside the stream -

Had our packed lunch - Sandwich and sitting/ walking here and there for photo shoot. The stream doesn't impress me much, as it looks similar to nature environment in Sabah (i.e. Mesilau/ Poring Hot Spring). However, those photos we took were as beautiful as it seen.

 

- Calm River Stream -

My friend love the shot I took. :) Feeling much fresher and calm after admired it.

Our duration for visiting to the above were limited, we walked back to the Bus and proceed to the next destination and a really beautiful lake I have seen at Lake District.


- Lake Windermere -

Relaxing stores beside the lake. :) I just love all the shots and we bought mint ice cream which taste so good (the first pic (left) on the banner of this blog).

From Wiki:
"Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway's branch line in 1847. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park. Windermere has also been the venue for the Great North Swim since 2008." - Source


- Cruising along the lake -

Various cruises (ferry and boat) with different prices that suitable for all. And each of them has a name.


- Queen of the Lake -


- Even the swan and ducks are nice -

Those swans were huge!! It freaks me when I took photos with them.


- The Wishing Well -

Thrown a coin and wished for better future.


- Me and my friends -

The Malaysian way!


- Boat Ride at Lake Windermere -

We had a boat ride that cost us 6 pound for one (1) hour Only. The girls just sat comfortably (although somehow scary between the kayak) by the boys. Switching places between the two guys were dangerous though.


- Enjoying the life as a British -

Majority of British owned a yatch/ a boat/ a movable house (with a car). That's the life with their family. 

Good weather played their part too. Breezy air that comfort the people.


- Lake Windermere -

A precious natural lake in England. ;) Looking forward to see other similar places in other part of the world too. :)

That's all for the day trip to Lake District. Ain't it beautiful?
