I was searching for clear skies again today after more rain all weekend. Keswick seemed very clear when I arrived with Skiddaw particularly looking good. With a walk from the Gale Road car park we did well to stay dry, if somewhat windblown, and saw perhaps the only blue skies in the Lake District today.
