I had a trip down to Bowness at the weekend and the weather was just delightful. I couldn't resist a couple of quick sketches on the quiet shore of Windermere. The water was very still and with soft shades of Blue. But sitting sketching listening to the woodpecker, you can imagine my gasps when a slither of dark emerges across the Lake, I watch and wonder with eyes wide 'Is this 'Bownessie' the monster of Windermere?'
I reckon these hardy fishermen might know more?
If you look closely at the name of the boat it's called ' Pike r us'
