7th visit. On a solo 555 linear bus walk/ jog from Swirls car park to Keswick on a beautiful sunny autumnal day. Down to shorts here as the warmth of weak mid day sun just about beat the chill of the NE breeze. Great side lighting and shadow off all the Lakeland hills on this magnificent calm sunny autumnal day with blue sky. Low Rigg next then Keswick for lunch stop with local friend Martin looking after his 3 year old today.Chris Pearson21/11/2023
