Wordsworth Country #2...

This is Grasmere. William Wordsworth's house is over on the right at the end of the lake, slightly up the hill, and when he lived there he had an unobstructed view across to the hills and mountains beyond. Today there are a number of buildings around his house, including the Wordsworth Museum and hotel across the road (the Daffodil Hotel).

On a walk around Rydal Water and Grasmere, the clouds would occasionally let the sun through to illuminate the hills and the snow-capped mountains. And with very little wind keeping the water calm, the whole scene was like a picture book.
