Portinscale / Newlands Beck Walk

Rob, Brock and I had a walk from Portinscale (near Keswick in The Lake District) along Newlands Beck today.

It is an easy, flat walk with fabulous mountain and farmland views. The gorse bushes were in flower next to the beck, and it was not too busy at this time of year. Please click on any photo to see a larger version.

We had morning coffee and cake before the walk, and lunch after the walk at The Chalet Tearoom in Portinscale. We had jacket potatoes and salads: Rob's with cheese and pickle; mine with Moroccan spiced aubergine. The food arrived very quickly and was tasty. The salads included a chilli-spiced wilted greens with spinach and purple sprouting, which was particularly delicious. Dogs are allowed inside and out, so this is a favourite eating place for us.
