It was a difficult day of hiking. Since it was a most beautiful day with the sun finally coming out, we decided to take the upper route across the tops of the mountains. Up and down and up and down finally took its toll on my knees.
It was a welcome relief to finally reach the charming town of Grasmere. I quickly recognized a friendly sheep on a sign. I have an apron at home with this sheep named Herdy. I learned from the shopkeeper that Herdy is named for the Herdwick sheep. This is the only shop in the UK. You may read more about this company on their webpage http://www.herdy.co.uk/
