Just a day out with granddaughter Katie and daughter Jill and her friend Charlie and boy Barney and Charlie's mother.
Miller Ground is a little bay just out of Windermere and near the famous Michelin Star hotel: Miller Howe. Free parking is possible in a lay-by or one of two pay and display car parks. Access is down a path to the shore. I was very much surprised to find this delightful spot not hopelessly busy on this bank-holday Sunday. There were plenty of people about but it was a pleasant place to be on this hot sunny day. I had taken a camp chair and sat and read my book and watched Jill and Katie having a ball in the water. Next time I would be in there myself if my knees would allow.
Jill with her friend Charlie went off a couple of times on quite long swims into the lake. They towed floatation devices to provide additional warning to boats and also to act as buoyancy in the case of difficulty.
