Sometimes when it's as hot as it's been today, it's good to head to the woods. A cool breeze and the welcome shade can make all the difference. This walk was from Castlerigg through Great Wood down to the shore of Derwent Water and followed the lake edge up to Hawse End. A mix of woodland, marshland and lakeside walking made for a really interesting day. I even spotted an owl sat just feet away from me. He blinked three times, then took off silently into the canopy. Beautiful.
