My sister was still staying with us so along with Ged and blind Kas we decided to do the easy walk around Ennerdale Water.
A walk of 7.2 miles. With the small hill of Angler’s Crag to give a bit of elevation and good view down the lake.
We started at the Bowness Knott Car park and walked anti-clockwise.
