Our penultimate trip this year took us to Ullswater in the Lake District. We stayed in a hotel whose grounds extended down to the shores of the lake.

When we arrived, it was raining. It often rains in England’s Lake District – if it didn’t then we wouldn’t have such beautiful lakes and greenery!

The following morning, once the mist had cleared, we enjoyed blue skies and glorious autumn sunshine:

I’ve always liked taking pictures of empty seats but didn’t realise until I saw this challenge that I am not alone!

    Thank you so much. It’s a place we love.

Oh what fabulous views you have photographed 😀

    Helen Bushe · 19 November 2020 at 18:29

    It’s a place we are keen to revisit as soon as we can get out and about again.

What a stunning place the lakes are, Helen. I’ve never been. Hopefully, next year (if restrictions allow).

    Ah……next year…..I’ll wave if I see you

I’d love to sit there and read 🙂

Beautiful images Helen and it’s such a lovely setting – we’ve eaten in the restaurant a few times and wandered through the gardens when we lived in Cumbria

    Helen Bushe · 19 November 2020 at 18:34

    It’s quite something! And the food is as good as the scenery as you know.

XingfuMama · 18 November 2020 at 21:05

Very beautiful setting. I could sit there a good long time.

    Helen Bushe · 19 November 2020 at 18:35

    Thank you. It is so beautiful and so tranquil.
