Picturesque Lake Winderemere

Promise of quaintnessVisited the north-west of the UK last weekend, the coastal town of Southport. I’d never been there before  and was pleasantly surprised, situated and   opposite the famous city of  Liverpool, which is as iconic as iconic can be as the “Beatles” did come from Liverpool. The river Mersey separates both towns. I can tell you the Mersey does not look inviting at all! Very cold and fierce even though the sun was shinning. Not that you’d want to take a dip! Only had a short stay in Southport  did a bit of retail  we then we made  towards the Lake District,  to  Windermere  passing through Kendal a sleepy little village, not a lot going on mainly residential but surrounded by beautiful countryside. When we got to Lake Windermere what a delight. The day was a bit dull weatherwise  but very warm. It was only a quick getaway overnight stay, so not a huge amount of time to do all I would have liked to but to say Lake Windermere  is stunning is an understatement and a sail over the lake is a must.   The scenery is beautiful. Being springtime all the trees were coming to life but I imagine in the autumn  the changing colour of the different foliage all around but especially on the lakes edge would be outstanding. It’s a very attractive  little town has a lot going on and absolutely packed with tourists.  Nearly there.
