today's walk: a Lake Distict National Park Patrol from Rosthwaite to Watendlath - then back to Keswick

I got off the Honister Rambler bus in Rosthwaite - the open deck Seatoller bus is just behind

lambs at Rosthwaite

Castle Crag from the path to Watendlath

this route to avoid a couple of river crossings is hardly needed after the long spell of dry weather
