The huge expanse of Windermere in the Lake District National Park has always been very impressive, no matter what time of year it always seems to delight.
Under a clear summer sun, it looks beautiful, there is no doubt about that.
But even on days where the sun doesn't shine, which to be honest is most of the year, it still looks tranquil, calm, and inviting.
Of course for the braver travellers amongst us, you can always hire a small rowing boat and get out on the water - there are of course small electric boats you can hire and the bigger tourist boats that take you for a trip.
However, there is something really nice about the small rowing boats.
It is a great place to visit and to explore - wonderful fresh air, great views and lots of hills to climb.
