A paddle on Derwent Water

A lovely day on Derwent Water – the weather was lovely, especially in the morning.

Anyway we parked in Kettlewell, paddled up to the Theatre on the Lake (for coffee) and then across to the far shore – the Cat Bells side.┬áIt was tree lined and quieter, and really beautiful in the sunshine. In fact I prefer that side of the lake and the little bays. I loved the way the cones marked the high water mark. We also had a little shield bug as an extra guest, before heading back across the lake.

When we were packing up, an old couple came along with matching brollies, cute.
