Saturday April 19th 2008 To Hawes Water!
We decided to visit Hawes Water, but first we wanted to obtain some prints to turn into postcards to send to family and friends, and also to pick up some food shopping, so into Keswick, and the local Boots to print off half a dozen postcards. Pat takes blank postcards with us on holiday that we attach to the back of the prints with double sided tape to provide an address panel an message area, as if you try to write on the back of prints, the ink takes ages to dry and it smudges.
Saturday is market day in Keswick, so naturally I had to take a few shots.There were plenty of stalls, but not many shoppers.
We were soon on our way and after a break arrived at Hawewater, and parked at our usual vantage point overlooking the island, the bluff, and the far end of the lake, which is of course, a man made reservoir.

The scale of the scenery here is amazing, it's so vast!
