Yesterday DH and I set off to the Lake District to the town of Keswick, a 13th century market town 'Kesewic' meaning farm where cheese is made. However we did not go for the cheese but the breath taking scenery of Lake Derwent and a trip to the pencil museum. The weather was a bit hit and miss, cloudy with the sun trying its best to peep through occasionally but strong bitterly winds made the day very cold. The winds where so strong that unfortunately all the boat trips along the lake had to be cancelled. Still we had a great day and once again I was spoilt when Colin bought me a set of ink intense blocks from the shop in the pencil museum.
