Hiking around Keswick

As will probably preface every blog entry hereon in, long time no post. One reason of many was a weekend trip to Keswick, back at the start of November. Having never been to the Lake District this was an area I’ve wanted to visit for years, and it was great to finally see these iconic rolling hills for myself.  Just a little more patience was required before I managed it, though. The Lake District is renowned for its rain, and sure enough the Saturday was a total washout; five minutes after leaving our B&B the heavens opened, lashing the fells deep into the night. In other words, a good day to blow the budget in Keswick’s many pubs and restaurants.

On the Sunday and Monday we were rewarded with perfect Autumn weather, though, and devoted the days to a circuit of Derwent Water and a yomp up Walla Crag. Plenty more shots await in my Keswick set on Flickr.
