The walk out from Keswick town centre to the shore of Derwentwater is an easy peasy one, taking you through Hope Park and past the Theatre By The Lake. It;s a walk I like doing whenever I’m in the town, you can soon leave the tourist bustle behind ( and there’s ice cream available on the way ) I took this route a few weeks ago, the weather was more settled, though not quite as furnace hot as it id at the moment I was still grateful for the breezes coming ashore from the lake. I made my was past Friars Crag with the monument to John Ruskin, it’s green lake land slate blending in with the trees. Walking on I came to Strandshag Bay that looks across to Lord’s Island tucked in close to the shore. I passed this tree, it’s bleached, dead whiteness shining in the evening sunshine. It stood silent, almost reproachful, in the middle of a field of the greenest grass overlooked by the rolling Cumbrian hills and mountains. Like a ghost at a celebration.
