Graham our tour guide did a good job showing us through the lakes. It was a great sunny day in October and we were lucky to have lots of nice views of the various lakes we visited. Clouding of Windermere that we witnessed from one of the points was magical. Best part of the trip was Surprise Point. It was surreal to watch the river flow past the mountains and the landscape was breathtaking. We did lunch at the town of Keswick. Luckily it was a Thursday where we get to walk through the market in the town centre. Some other noteworthy places were the Stone circle; while the true history of that place is still unknown it was interesting to watch those stones arranged in that peculiar fashion. Sheep grazing nearby and the beautiful panoramic views of mountains around it just added to the overall natural beauty of the place. Graham was a great guide because all throughout the journey he gave us insights and tidbits; even going into etymology of words like Keswick
