Yestreday we walked down Derwentwater where Swallows and Amazons was based and we spent most of the time looking for Wild Cat island.

It was a very sunny day and I paddled in the River Derwent.

We stayed in Honister youth hostel.

Today the weather was the oppostite to yesterday - very windy, rainy, slightly foggy and very boggy.

I fell over 8 times!!!

we are now staying in Grasmere youth hostel and we think we wont go up helvellyn and striding edge tomorrow because it is too windy (60mph!). Instead we will go up to Grisedale Tarn and then down to patterdale to meet Mum. I hope we can go up Helvellyn later in the week.
