During the summer of 2006 the Visual Norwegians visited the Lake District in England, a beautiful area of small lakes and larger mountains. Of course we had to stop by the first lake we met, which was this one: Ullswater. According to Wikipedia:
Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District, being approximately nine miles (14.5 kilometres) long and 0.75 miles (1,200 m) wide with a maximum depth of slightly more than 60 metres (197 ft).As we can see we met both some local dwellers and a number of other tourists that enjoyed the scenery.
A local sightseeing ship also came by.
There are four of these so-called Ullswater-steamers.
Some of the local inhabitants were very interested in the largest visiting Visual Norwegian, especially in how his toes tasted. For some reason the exact moment of this close encounter was not photographed.
Otherwise, the Lake District is highly recommended.
