Then it was downhill toward Derwent Water,
en route to the town of Keswick and a well deserved shandy.
And a day that I was half dreading turned out to be a very enjoyable one indeed. Unfortunately, not all of the country has fared as well during this unseasonable snow storm. Lots of people are still without power and especially on the Isle of Man hundreds of sheep and other livestock have died in the snow drifts. I'm definitely ready for spring now.
