How many lakes are there in the Lake District?
Five? Ten? A few dozen? Believe it or not, just one—Bassenthwaite Lake!
Well, actually, it might be nitpicking of a high order. The truth is, there a number of ‘water bodies’, but only one officially named ‘Lake’. The others are all ‘meres’ or ‘waters’, like Windermere, Buttermere, Derwent Water, Crummock Water!
So now you know! 😉
(By the way, I have plenty of lovely pictures of the above. Stay tuned!)

I like the name, “Crummock Water” best out of those.
You call that an update?!
knew you would be updating atleast once before you got back 🙂
@Kat: I like Windermere best!
@Marie: Well… cut me some slack. I’m technically on holiday! and with the latest happenings in London, I wonder if I’ll actually be able to board my flight!
@Alpana: And pray where are you? In the US?! Ha ha… 😛
