Last summer, I struggled up and over Catbells, a 1,480-foot hill above Derwentwater--a walk I've recommended for years (and felt guilty having never actually hiked in its entirety). But I was glad I ventured out -- I welcomed the wind "blowing the cobwebs out" (as my B&B host warned) atop Catbells, the comedic baaing of sheep, and being "the stick figure on the ridge" for those observing from distant farms or boats on the lake..others have been the stick figures for me. Studying the light on ruddy faces while sipping the local brew has always been part of the magic of travel in Britain.
