With several of our friends on holiday in the Lakes for the week, we headed up for the day to join them for a walk. We met in the main Ambleside car park, put the babies in their carriers and set off walking around 11:15am heading out of town on the Grasmere road. At Scandale bridge we picked up a footpath through Rydal Park with good views of the autumnal trees and the lower slopes of the Fairfield horseshoe hills, although the higher hills were cloud capped. Isabel seemed to be enjoying the walk as she was babbling constantly!
On the outskirts of Ambleside we crossed a very narrow humpback bridge and headed for the town centre through Rothay Park, where there was a strange cairn sculpture. We returned to the car park at around 2pm and headed to the Rattle Gill cafe for tasty crumble before heading home.
