Coniston and Tarn Hows

Silverback, Amy and I headed off to beautiful Coniston Water today and had a cruise round the lake on the restored steam yacht Gondola. Very windy but glorious sunshine and glorious scenery too. Then to Tarn Hows - a lovely tarn surrounded by woodland.Silverback and I walked right round - it's a mile and three quarters - but Amy just walked part of the way and then waited for us in the car. She was not pleased with having to do this but she is 85 and she is recovering from a chest infection!
It's been a Grand Day Out all right and we've all enjoyed it. Some photos will no doubt follow but this is just a quick post from my Blackberry to say hello to you all.
Many thanks to Silverback for doing all the driving - the alternative would of course have been to be driven by me down the winding Lake District lanes. Hmmm.
