Water

Tuesday saw us driving into Keswick in the rain.  The showers came very heavily as we drove in, but thankfully, not too many of them.  As we walked around the town, we had to take shelter a couple of times, but the Edinburgh Woolen Mills shop came in handy for that!  The river Greta which runs through the town was swollen by the rains and crashed along its course.  In places, it was trying to break free from its banks and a few of the waterside properties were looking a little vulnerable.
The green space of Fitz Park provided the perfect spot to view all 3,054ft of Skiddaw, England's fourth highest peak.  Firstly in the dull cloud of our arrival...
... and later as the sun came out and lit the scene across the cricket ground and club house.
