Lake district

Lake District Weekend
23rd -26th August 2008

Michelle and i spent the weekend just outside Keswick in the Lake district this weekend. Deanna and Katie stayed at home with there uncle Robert.

We travelled up to cumbria by National Express coach, This took a whole day just getting there. We left whitstable at 7:50 am and arrived at London victoria by 9:35. Here we had a wait of 1hour 25 minutes for the next Coach at 11 am. Then the long journey began to Keswick with a brief 10 minute stop at Birmingham arriving at our destination at 7:40 pm, we then had to get a taxi to our campsite, finally setting our tent up at 8:15pm. For spending a day just sitting in a seat i felt exhausted.

On the sunday we headed to Kewsick to catch the Boat across Derwant Water, we started our walk at Lodore to see the Water Falls.

We then started the climb of Catbells (In Reverse),

The Climb was tiring, but worth it for the views

The summit at 1500 ft was reached and the panarama was fantastic

We Started the decent, which to be honest was alot more difficult than the Ascent

It was a scramble to get down, this would be dangerous on a wet day.

We really enjoyed the climb and will be back to do some more.
