Day 2 in the Lakes

Day 2 and it was dry all day except for a bit of Scotch mist (yes, even in the English Lake District) as we walked back from the pub tonight.

It was a coast day for us and we started at Drigg near high tide. Lots of wave action to capture as well as patterns and shapes at the edge of the dunes. Andrew also found a large jelly fish high and dry above the high tide line.

From here we moved on to Saltcoats. The track to Ravenglass and all of the mudflats here were under deep water so we were unable to walk to Ravenglass. Instead we had to drive round to Ravenglass and walk back across the footbridge towards Saltcoats as far as the tide would allow (not far!). Then into Ravenglass before heading to the Ratty Arms pub for lunch.

After lunch it was down to Eskmeals for more beach shots before driving up to St Bees Head for some rock shots.

After returning to Stanley House and a quick wash and brush up we had a Photoshop session before going out for dinner in Boot.

Very little sunshine but still lots of good shots. The forecast for tomorrow is good so we are going to Wasdale. Fingers crossed for good views and sunshine.
