Headed over to Woolfest in Cockermouth and took the opportunity to visit Keswick on a glorious summers day.
First a walk to the iconic boats and birds.
And to see one of the best views in the world, across Derwentwater to Borrowdale.
I sat on the grass enjoying the cool breeze blowing off the lake.
Could have stayed there for hours, days, weeks, forever.
Wooliest was wonderful. I haven’t been for a few years.
Everyone is so friendly and the colour of the wool against the dark concrete of the Auction Mart is a photographers dream.
Except I was too busy buying and looking
Here’s one sleepy character. I don’t know the breed but he / she is beautiful.
So what did i buy?
A box of colours to paint with.
A sheep fleece to wash
Another sheep fleece to wash!
A box of monochrome greys
And a stunning jumper which I must photo for you.
I walked back to the car like a pack-mule!
I had a late lunch sitting in my car, door open and enjoying the view.
Fabulous two days away. Can’t wait to go back next year,
