Nov 5 – Tuesday: Keswick, Lake District, UK
About 5.00pm we arrive at Barron House, a youth hostel, a pleasure after many hours of walking. This hostel is an imposing building and is in the Superior Class, i.e. it has all facilities. The drying room comes in handy after a day out in the elements. The library has some interesting old hard back covered books such as “That Summer”. There are magazines about cycling, walking and climbing too.
Today is our tough walk. After a super English breakfast we take the bus down to Stonethwaite where we begin our walk. We meet Paul and Robert, two other walkers who are out for a ½ day walk.
