I am sure a few of you who are looking at these pictures have got a boat from Bowness harbour. Bowness on Windermere is the English Lakes most visited place, and the boats are the most popular tourist attraction we have.
The swans are having a great time. They are very vain and currently have lots of visitors and people feeding them chips!
This ugly monstrosity of a building is currently shut because of the floods. The views are amazing from here but the architecture is appalling. Apparently it won an award in the seventies. Do I believe this???
This is the view from outside the tourist information centre. Now closed
Apparently the lake hasn't been this high for fifty years plus.
It is going to take a long time to clear up, and this is just the start of the winter.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to everyone who has been flooded in their home or business. It must be devastating.
A policeman died when he was swept to his death when a bridge collapsed in Cockermouth. Very sad. Everyone in Cumbria mourns for his family. Thursday was a very bleak day.
