A Lingering Look at Lakeland Windows

My wish is fulfilled
I am back in sweet Grasmere

~ Woodrow Wilson 1908

Visiting the beautiful Vale of Grasmere in the heart of the English Lake District I couldn’t help photographing some of the interesting buildings and windows in the pretty village.

Some of the pretty tourist shops and cafés in the village.


And the most sumptuous Victorian Villa with lacy barge-boards and wonderful conservatory windows.

This weekly challenge is hosted by Dawn from ‘The Day After’ who invites participants to post pictures of any windows that  they find curious, inviting, photogenic, or in some way tell a story. Visit her blog to see more windows and/or to join in with the challenge.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It is lovely, though touristy rather than somewhere you could live. I’ll post a walk around the lake eventually, with some lovely views.
