Haverthwaite and Lakeside Railway and Windermere Cruise
31 August 2009
A day forecast to be wet with very low cloud caused
Stephen to seek alternative entertainment...
After lunch at the station buffet at Haverthwaite, there is a good Bank
Holiday crowd to watch the train from Lakeside pulling into the station
ready to form
the 1300 departure.
At the other end of the line, the MV Tern turns round ready to take
passengers from the train on to Bowness or Ambleside, with Gummer's How
in the background.
On the boat, the rain comes in from the south.
And to the north, all the high fells are hidden in cloud. The weather
wasn't quite as bad as I'd expected, but it still wouldn't have been
much fun fell-walking, though a low-level walk might have been ok.
MV Tern at Bowness, where I had a little wander and bought an excellent
ice-cream - something rarely to be found on a fell walk.
