England's Lake Country

Some snaps from our whirlwind tour of the Lake District near Lake Windermere and beyond. There would be more specific captioning, except that I have no clue where we were most of the time. We shared the tour with a Japanese couple with an odd map and very specific ideas about where they wanted to go. Which was all over. Add to that the incessant rain and wind, and the fact that Kaley and I were jet-lagged and James was recovering from food poisoning, and we're lucky we could hold the camera straight. So here you go -- random shots from a breathtaking part of this country, none of which capture the raw beauty and wild glory of the place.
