2017/08/04 Great Britain Day 10: Hiking around the Lake District (Glenridding, Howtown, Keswick)

Day #10: very occasional light rain, aka a fine sunny day in Great Britain (good given the hours of hiking we did)

On the way to the lake district, we stopped by Dove Cottage/Wordsworth Museum, which while having some nice cottages, was kind of boring given that I had no idea who the former inhabitant (poet/writer) was



But this put us on the way to the hilly region around lakes, where we did a couple of hikes:



after parking our car, we took the boat across the lake

and we did that hike back (11km, 2h20-ish)

We then got back to our car, and we drove to the next lake by Keswick, and did the catbell hike to the local top. Thank god for long days, we were able to start late-ish in the afternoon when there was room in the 8 car only trailhead location. That hike was a lot more steep and gave better views:




welcome to the top, although a real 'Arturo' would have been standing on top of the marker :)

then we hiked down around and back down to the lake

those were all over

And after close to 20km/4.5h of hiking, we drove to our gastro pub for well needed food :)
