Rossett Pike Langdales

It was my birthday on Tuesday and I always try not to work and be somewhere pleasurable. We decided on a walk up Rossett Pike in the Langdales. It was a beautiful day and quite hot on the way up. We found a lovely little tarn at the top with a fantastic view of Bowfell in the distance. With sandwiches from my favourite deli 'Good taste in Keswick' and the warm sun shinning I could'nt ask for anymore. I could'nt help doing a quick sketch while we had lunch. I've walked up some lovely mountains on my birthday Ben More on Isle of Mull, Buachaille etive mor in the Scottish Highlands, and quite a few in the Lake District.

New Birthday shoes!
