>YESTERDAY’S REGULAR UPDATE BENEATH THIS ONE.
On Monday I went out. It was a miserable day but my back and neck ached so much after hunching over the laptop for a whole day (playing games, uploading pictures, writing notes, etc, etc), that I decided to get out and have a look around.
My first stop was Pooley Bridge at the northern tip of Ullswater. The first thing you see when you arrive in this village is a pay and display car park next to the river. If you drive a bit further into the village, though, there are plenty of free car parking spaces for up to 2 hours.
My parking spot was in front of St Paul’s Church:
I wandered back down the main street and landed on a bridge overlooking the River Eamont:
I’m not sure if this river runs into or out of Ullswater Lake, but it certainly runs.
Could this be Duck Island?
Jackdaws and mallards feeding together:
Feeding the ducks:
This mallard went off in a sulk because I didn’t have any food for her:
I did a bit of shopping in the village, bought some food, a carry mat for sitting on when I’m out walking, and a couple of souvenirs. Then I headed off down to the other end of the lake and Glenridding.
