Worldcon Report 15: Lakes and Hills

by Brenda W. Clough

image Today was a day devoted to landscape. The Lake District is big on it — glorious mountains, rocky cliffs, stony screes, waterfall-fed lakes. We took a bus tour around the countryside. The great advantage of this is that one does not have to drive along one-lane roads teeming with bicyclists, hikers, and speedy local cars heading the other way.

Then, in a spirit of topping up the cup, we took a boat tour around Derwent Water, the lake here at Keswick. It turns out that a waterproof jacket is a lovesome thing. I am going to go back to the novel and modify all the descriptions.
