Grizedale Forest and Grasmere

We spent a wonderful day walking several miles around Grizedale Forest. 

The forest is also a famous sculpture park and over the years I have photographed many of these sculptures - they are mostly in wood or stone. 

I've included just a few of my favourites here. 

The cake requires a special mention.... served in the Grizedale cafe, it is a gluten and dairy free lemon cake.

And it was to truly die for.

Really.

No, really. 

I asked for the recipe / supplier and found the Gluten Free kitchen. 

One large order coming my way next week.

Our cottage was just a few minutes from Grasmere and one evening we took a gentle stroll from Rydal to the Lake.  We are at the far side of Grasmere Lake looking towards the village.

A perfect evening.
