Early Morning Grasmere

July 20, 2015

One of the delights of living in the Lake District is being able to head out early in the morning and enjoy the tranquility of the area before no one is about. It was one such morning last week, time before work to go for a quick row on Grasmere.

Reflections on the lake are always beautiful but especially so at the start of the day, however the mere was a bit choppy. It was going to be a warm day, so a breeze was welcome.

Fairyland rowing boats always give a splash of colour any time of the day.

So back in to the village. Was tempted to head in to the Grand @ Grasmere for breakfast it looked so inviting in the early morning sunshine.

The centre of the village was still silent, preparing for the visitors to arrive, although the aroma of Grasmere Gingerbread was already in the air. Another busy day in Grasmere ahead.
