Northwards Through the Sunshine to the Lakes

We said goodbye to Robin & Jean this morning and headed northwards from Wharfedale, stopping for a break opposite this view…
… which I found out was of the Forest of Bowland when I took Bella for a little stroll.
We'd parked in the car park for an Organic Farm shop - Growing with Grace, which turned out to be a community project in Clapham (North Yorkshire). 
We headed for the ferry across Lake Windermere, and ended up being first in the queue for the next sailing. Bella jumped in the lake - really enjoying herself - and Su and I had an ice cream and felt positively continental in the warm sunshine while we waited for the ferry to come back across.
On board and ready to sail! 
Ferry fares - I like the equivalence of a moped with a horse.
Looking back as we sailed across 
We reached our destination for the day - Coniston Coppice Park campsite and found a pitch in a quiet glade under the trees. Su unveiled our newest purchase - butterfly duvet covers!
This day a year ago, we were in Ilfracombe enjoying the sheer size and magnificence of Damien Hirst's statue, Verity at the entrance to the harbour.
