    ... moors. The pink and purple of the heather makes for beautiful scenery, however they do lack the Wuthering Heights type bleakness of a few days ago and in Scotland. Only 3 more days to go now, the time has gone so quickly thanks to reasonably good weather, new boots and interesting people along the way. It's a bit different to the West Highland Way though where you met many people every day. Here there are so many more variations and places to stay that chats are less ...

    ... the contours of Lake Windermere which is close to the restaurant.

    Soon we were ushered into the dining room at which time the chef's amuse bouche was served. I specifically told the maitre d' that I did not eat shellfish so they brought out something with shrimp and octopus. That would never happen at the Gilpin Hotel as there are a variety of controls set in place to prevent any special dietary requirements from ...

    ... to get there, oh well, we'd better get our walking feet on then! Left the site and walked the 2 miles or so DOWN into Keswick, out the other side through a few fields into Portinscale, gave a little wave to our cottage and followed the signs to the lake, several miles later we arrived at the bottom of Catbells, skirted around this and onto the waters edge, we weren't really sure where the carving was but soon ...

    Another lovely day in the lakes

    Go up to a gorgeous day again, breakfast done and dusted we decided it was a walk around Lake Buttermere today. Howard drove (to far to walk), drove through some lovely passes, one being Via Ferrata, Where mad people people hang of the cliff face and walk along, ( go google it and you'll see what I mean!) we were going to have a go but unfortunately it was too busy ;-) made our way to the car parks ...

    What a lovely walk

    Up to the sun shining, kids playing! Kettle on full English cooked (well French sausages but the rest was English). Left the site around 11am, our aim today was Walla Crag and around Derwentwater. A steady climb to the top left us a pooped out but the view was worth it, the whole of Keswick lay beneath us, with Derwentwater to our left and Bassenthwaite lakes to our right. After the obligatory photos it was back down the other side. At one point Deb slipped and ...
