The main water front, Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, is located on
the shores of Windermere.

Further along the waterfront  are more piers and more cruises available,
the main 
destinations from Bowness
Ambleside and Lakeside.

While the swans and ducks get fed by the visitors, the MV Teal arrives from Ambleside.

The Teal approaches the pier before reversing around the pier end to it’s mooring point.

This is a well practiced manounuver. It’s done like this to allow the boat to depart the pier forwards.

Pier number 1 is the main pier for
 Ambleside and Lakeside.
This is the view as the boat leaves the
pier.The big building in the background
is the Belsfield Hotel.

The rear of the Lake View, from there you can see right down the lake towards Ambleside.

These boat houses are completely obscured
from the road as you drive round the lake side to the main car parks.

Although this was a very cloudy day there were some sunny periods.

This photograph reminds me of the Johnny Cash song about Ireland, “The 40 shades of green.”

This guy on the jet ski entertained us nearly all the way from Bowness to Lakeside.

to Bowness.

As we dock at Lakeside, the Haverthwaite – Lakeside steam train
arrives for passengers to board the boat (named Tern) we arrived on,
