Rain in Keswick – Sunday 1st July

 

Continuing this summer’s theme Sunday dawned very wet.  Leaving Langdale, we stopped off at Ambleside and had a wander up to the waterfall five minutes out of town.

A chance to catch up with friends for lunch in Keswick, where the rain continued.

Good to see that the flood defences have been successful preventing the all too familiar flooding which occurred.  High water levels not surprising after the continuing rain.

After lunch we wandered across to Fitz Park to see the runners come in from the Skiddaw fell race.  Quite a few familiar faces running in the race, although they wouldn’t have seen each other as the cloud base was so low.

Practising panning!

Skiddaw’s up there somewhere

Good to catch up with folk and a coffee sitting outside – under canopy at Briyson’s with Steve finished off the day before driving home.
