Coniston: Part 3 of 3

There were a few folk enjoying the view and the sunshine. 
Such a perfect day. 

Back in Coniston.
Hate to think how many photographs have been taken of Yewdale Road from this spot.

Coniston: Part 2 of 3

If you fancy hiring a boat on Coniston Water, this is the building to go to. 
You could hire one of these, or ...... 
....  hire one of these. 
Steam Yacht 'Gondola' leaves Coniston with almost a full load of passengers. 

"Just how much longer is that owner of mine going to be on her mobile?" 

You can wander along the shore for quite some distance. 
A tribute left for someone. 
"Ah, this is the life!"
Looking along the shore.

(NOTE: This is the 750th set of photo's that have appeared on North West Images!!!)

Coniston: Part 1 of 3

It was a warm and sunny day when I visited Coniston, as can be seen in this view looking along Yewdale Road. 
Before walking to the lake, I had to be fortified with one of my favourite ales from the Coniston Brewery, namely, 'Barley Wine No.9.'  At 8.5% it is to be sipped and savoured!
Suitably refreshed! The start of the walk to the lake at Coniston.

Steam yacht 'Gondola' was at the pier awaiting departure. 

'Gondola' steaming and ready to depart. 
Intricate carving on the bow of 'Gondola.'
With a slight breeze and a warm day, it was perfect for a spot of sailing on Coniston Water.  

A few 'locals' out and about.

The Northumbrian town of Amble stands at the mouth of the River Coquet. Although fishing still takes place out of the harbour, it is much reduced in importance of years gone by. All the photo's in this series have been taken by Mooncat755 and DeniseG.
