From our Bowness Bed and Breakfast, Blenheim Lodge, it is only a 5-minute walk to Bowness Bay, so we often take our Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Zack, out for his daily walks by the water. We have had lovely days of clear blue skies recently, and I decided to accompany Hubby and Zack for their evening walk around Bowness Bay where we saw lots of visiting and resident birds at Windermere lakeshore.

As you can see, there is lots of birdlife on the lakeshore. I shot another photograph of a couple of swans paddling off into the sunset after preening their feathers by Bowness Pier.

Bowness Bay is home to Windermere Lake Cruises, which operates ferries that crisscross the Lake. These vessels range in size as you can see in the photo below. There are also smaller boats, such as canoes and kayaks that visitors can rent by the hour.

Ferries of different shapes and sizes lay up in Bowness Bay for the evening.
