Publishing the October walks programme

I am in the process of putting the finishing touches to the October programme before I post it here and on the website. So it is imminent and I know some of you have been waiting patiently to see it. Remember you can also pick up a printed copy of the programme from the Tourist Information Centre at the Moot Hall when you are in Keswick.  These will be up to date inclusive of the October walks and available from the Moot Hall sometime this weekend.

Because I usually put things on this blog first (it is the quickest method of communicating), I advise looking here if you are in a hurry.  I update the website next and lastly print the programmes. So now you know....

Meanwhile, the sun has been beaming on us for the last few days, and we have had many satisfied customers and returning clients on our walks this week. We also bought a new camera which has been taken out on a couple of walks but has proved to be more difficult to master than the previous one. However, we did manage to take a few shots on a recent Catbells foray and I include a shot or 2 for your amusement.

The idyllic scene as we disembark from the Keswick Launch at Hawse End.

The walk underway and ensuring we go up by the old mine workings so I can give my Beatrix Potter patter about Mrs Tiggy Winkle. (You must have read the tale of the hedgehog.)

A summit shot, all of us being blown to kingdom come by the wind......and just before we descended and saw the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team and the Air Ambulance in action that day 29th August.

Hello Lynn - nice seeing you and Pete the other night, pity Ewan and I didn't have chance to stop and chat! Good to see sunshine again in Keswick, just a pity the rain spoilt the party today (along with my hair, got flattened by a heavy shower!).
I'm intrigued, why is your new camera a little harder to understand? Seems to take nice photos though! One of the cameras I have is a bit of a twit, there's an icon on the screen, and neither Ewan or I know what it is, or how to get rid of it!!! It would be a case of RTFM, if only we could find the manual....
You never know, I might just be able to go walking with you guys one day. Once I'm feeling a bit better that is, could end up next year at this rate! :-(

Basically, the new camera has more features, and I should RTFM too! It has 2 different auto modes and its working out which one is best for outdoors photography which is proving more difficult. I will get there though.
