Yes Saturday was a fantastic sunny day in Keswick, I think the weather forecasters got it the wrong way round, Sunday was supposed to be the better day. Good news was that it didn't rain and the weather improved on the way down. Great walk though and I couldn't wait for the weather any longer I just had to get out.
