Trip to Woolfest

Headed over to Woolfest in Cockermouth and took the opportunity to visit Keswick on a glorious summers day.

And to see one of the best views in the world, across Derwentwater to Borrowdale.
I sat on the grass enjoying the cool breeze blowing off the lake.
Could have stayed there for hours, days, weeks, forever.

Wooliest was wonderful. I haven’t been for a few years.
Everyone is so friendly and the colour of the wool against the dark concrete of the Auction Mart is a photographers dream.
Except I was too busy buying and looking

Here’s one sleepy character.  I don’t know the breed but he / she is beautiful.

I walked back to the car like a pack-mule!

I had a late lunch sitting in my car, door open and enjoying the view.
Fabulous two days away.  Can’t wait to go back next year,
