... 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.

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.
