Today we had a walk up to Cat Bells (the setting for Beatrix Potter’s ‘The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle’, Connie’s favourite – of course!), getting there and back using the Derwent Water launch from Keswick. It was a warm day and Connie did brilliantly completing this climb, her hardest yet I think and she absolutely loved it on the launch.
