The weather was lovely and sunny in Keswick today but fairly cool and no one turned up for my last guided walk of the year, which was sad. It seems to me that sometimes when you look around, that Keswick is just full of people for half term but they do not look like walkers; more like daytrippers. One local shopkeeper came up to me and said 'why don't they go to Blackpool?' he then added that trade had been ok last weekend but since then it had been bad. So its not just me then I thought, its all of us who don't seem to get customers at this time of year. Well I shall be taking a small break myself next week, Pete, Bella and I will be walking over to Wasdale and returning the next day.
