The walk along the coastal path had been quite energetic but as we returned to the car park at St Bee's the promised sun appeared; the temperature rose significantly and the wind dropped. The prospect for the afternoon was excellent and so decided that we would stop on the way back to Keswick and climb Sale Fell. A fairly small Fell at 1,178 feet. Starting from Wythop Mill this Fell provides excellent views over Bassenthwaite Lake. One of my favourites lakes in the Lake District. The Fell did not disappoint.
The descent was past St Margaret's Church, consecrated in 1866, where the colour of daffodils in full bloom were stark against the grave stones. A beautiful little church and a peaceful place to stop and take in all the beauty of the area.
We decided that a gentle drive into Keswick would be a perfect end to the day with a fish and chip supper. Supper was very quickly eaten and we wandered down to Lake Derwentwater to enjoy what promised to be a beautiful sunset which fully met my expectations.
