  Hills in the mist
by iandsmith

This is, dare I use the words, a grassy knoll, adjacent to Hope Park and set aside the lake with tranquil (depending on the weather) views across Derwentwater. It's called Crow Park.
Somehow it's nice just being there. A soothing invigorating feeling creeps over you as you take in the ever-mobile ducks, the just-offshore island and the hills beyond. Then, as you glance around you may see mist covered hills behind you brooding over the town.
Depending on the time of the year you may see farm animals grazing here so, remember to be careful where you tread!
It's a place to come for solace and to recharge your batteries. The best times are early mornings and dusk when the light (when it's not raining) causes subtle colour changes in the landscape and, best of all, it's free.
