Photographer’s dream!

Bit of a gap between our last jaunt and this one, due to family commitments.  We were originally supposed to have visited Boroughbridge before Keswick but this has now been scheduled for mid-November.

Mid-September we were here at the Keswick Camping and Caravanning Club Site – which has to be one of our favourites so far.  Bri had visited before but it was my first time here.  The site, surroundings, and stunning scenery here are hard to beat.  The site’s situated on the edge of Derwentwater and a photographer’s dream location.  It has a really good feel to it too.  The first evening we took a bottle of fizz down to the water’s edge and just sat watching the sun go down.  It was surprisingly peaceful to say that the site was full.  We found our own little spot away from it all.

As you can see from the photos, our stay involved visiting Keswick town centre, including the bustling market, cycling the old railyway line to visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, and hiring a rowing boat to go out onto Derwentwater.

From this visit on we will be regular visitors.  This location has everything for a relaxing, scenic, getaway break from it all!

Next stop Hawkshead.

ONWARDS!>>>
