I am having a break in the Lake District. So far I have had some great walks and some runs that just don’t get any better as far as I am concerned.
But today it was raining so I mooched about the shops of Keswick. Many others had decided to do the same.
I was in an outdoor equipment and clothing shop and noticed a couple doing something odd. I tried not to stare. It took me a while to work out what they were doing, he would hold a small rucksack while she would hold next to it (for a brief moment) a waterproof jacket. Then another, then another. How odd.
And then I understood. She was seeing if the colours of the jacket and the rucksack went together!
I didn’t know people did that. Who cares about fashion up a mountain? Is it me out of step?
