This is an easy going walk, virtually all on the level, along the shore of Windermere and into the town of Ambleside. It started by getting the bus to the Low Wood Hotel, as seen above
Looking the other way, the Low Wood Hotel has fantastic views across Windermere. Needless to say, it isn't cheap to stay there!
The unmistakeable shape of the Langdales can be seen in the distance.
Walking along the shore, there are countless views across Windermere.

Through a delightful, but short, wooded section, with the lake on the left.
Looking south towards Bowness and beyind that, Lakeside. The Low Wood hotel, where the walk commenced, can just be seen in the top left of the photo.
Over a stile into Jenkins Field.
The first objective of the walk is to reach Helm Crag, which is tree lined.
Unusual tree with Helm Crag in the background.
All you could hear here was the gentle sound of the water lapping onto the shore. I had the place to myself.
Windermere residents going for a swim.
Time to sit down for a rest. Under this tree.
Helm Crag, I sat on a tree trunk, admiring the view and enjoying the peace and quiet. It was also a good place to eat my lunch! Low Wood Hotel can again be seen in the distance on the left.
Same spot as the previous image, but looking to the right.
It was time to move on and head for Waterhead. As can be seen, a dog suddenly appeared. It's owner was a little way behind out of the picture.
Helm Crag is actually the tree lined point directly ahead.
Heading for Waterhead is 'Swan,' one of the three large ships that cruise the length of Windermere.
Having turned the 'corner' at Helm Crag, we'll continue the walk into Ambleside with a further set of photo's tomorrow.
