Keswick boat landings and Friar's Crag

some madness on the shores of Derwentwater as the National Trust try to recreate Pocklington's Regatta

there are fairground attractions on the shore - but not my favourite - dodgems

looking up Derwentwater from the site of the fair

a cannon poised to duplicate Pocklington's firing over Derwentwater

Keswick boat landings looking to Causey Pike

zooming in on Grisedale Pike from the boathouse on Derwent Island

raft building - is this part of the regatta?

my usual path to Friar's Crag is not disrupted by the regatta - here looking to the head of the lake
