Day one of my late summer holiday and I am visiting the Lake District for the first time. My base for the week, is the village of Coniston.

First off, I walked down to the lakeside and took a cruise around the lake in one of the electric powered launches. After this a walk along the lake side and the back into town for some lunch.

To finish the day, I took a walk around the nearby Tarn Hows – As it was getting late I only completed a partial circuit, so I will have to come back to complete it.
