Derwent Water and Walla Crag

The ” Navigator” had expressed a wish to visit Keswick during the week to visit a travel agent who specializes in the Azores as he is planning a holiday there in 2014.

As the weather on Monday was looking damp in the morning, Keswick seemed a good idea with the possibility of a walk after seeing the travel agent.


With the promise of an itinerary being sent and the taste of an Azorian cake inside us and the weather looking better we set off for a walk along the shore of Derwent Water and then up to Ashness Bridge. Amazingly I was able to take a photo of this well known landmark with no one else around.

From here we headed upwards along a path leading to Walla Crag and back down through Keswick without being tempted into any gear shops!
