After the bright, warm sunshine of Sunday afternoon, we woke on Monday morning to leaden skies, mist and drizzle.  A quick walk up Orrest Head near the town of Windermere was a rather damp experience and the view of Windermere itself was a little 'grey'.
Malcolm was well prepared for the rain which started to fall as we reached the top...
Later in the day, we had a boat trip on the lake to the Northern end of the lake and the Town of Ambleside. The weather was a little better by the time we caught the boat back to Windermere, but the clouds were still rather dramatic over the high fells.
Glimpses of sunshine made things better still and enabled us to sit in the open on top of the boat.
