England & Scotland Pt. 4: Keswick, Lake District

We spent two nights in Keswick. It was pretty glorious, and easily my favorite town of the whole trip. The Lakes are gorgeous and there was always plenty to do in town. It thrives on tourism, but isn’t cheapened by it.

We arrived at night and made a quick stop by Derwentwater. Out in the fields were these odd white lumps, and it took a minute before I realized it was sheep sleeping.

The next day we again rented bikes and went for a ride around. Again, biking was harder than it should have been, but damn is that some beautiful scenery. After a good dose of griping we just went with it and walked our bikes up the hills.

Ken vs. hungry ducks. Or geese? Whatever they were, they were seriously freaking us out. Which isn’t as evident in these pictures.

One of many foot soaks along the trip. Oh, did I mention I got blisters before I even arrived in England?

Ohhh the Lakes. How could John Simm have been bored??

Bicycles in love.

We decided to walk to some standing stones nearby. On the way we found an abandoned train station.
