Canoe on Thirlmere.

View to Rough Crag from under The Swirls

Typically the weather improves when it's time to come home. We managed to squeeze in a few hours on Thirlmere.

We set off from Armboth car park, paddled across to the eastern shore, then south, exploring the shore as we went.

Whelpside Gill waterfalls

We managed to paddle a short way up Wyth Burn, at the southern end, due to the high water levels. Then up the west shore, stopping at Hawes How Island, and back to the start.
