Lake District

We are midway through our two week stay in the Lake District.

Blue has excelled himself at all times. Especially on our nightmare journey on Saturday. We had been travelling north on the M6, shortly after a welcome break at the motorway services, it looked as though we would reach our destination by 1.30 lunchtime.

This however was not to be, due to a serious accident on the M6' the motorway was closed Northbound from J34- J36, and our car was advising we left the motorway at J32. Which we did to travel on the A6, we never did rejoin the motorway and like so many others queued for long periods through congested towns along our route. We eventually arrived at our destination ten hours after setting out on a 320 mile journey. Not a peep from Blue, sat in the back of our Landrover.

Blue is making the most of his holiday, enjoying the many varied walks amongst England's finest mountains and lakes.

So far he has encountered sheep, dogs, sheep,cats, sheep, cows, sheep, ponies and some more sheep as well as admiring people.

Blue has crossed streams and fells ascended crags and gullies, traversed stone and timber bridges.

Blues adventures on his first week have took him to:-

Skiddaw house
Ashness Bridge
Fitz Park
Blease Fell
Walla Crag
Helvellyn summit

When we return home Blue will share his adventures in more detail with some pictures, today we are going to have a walk around the market town of Keswick, with a walk down to Derwent water.
