Some Days Are Very Special… A Day To Remember

Peter Habeler and Windlord Jacket
Some days are very special. To be recorded and remembered.

This Saturday was one of them.

Weather fantastic hot sun and blue sky all day, The Keswick Mountain festival was in full swing in a wonderful setting on the shores of Derwentwater with surrounding views of Catbells, Skiddaw and the Borrowdale Valley.

Throughout the morning Ben, Christeen and all the Rohan Keswick team played host to a very special visitor.

Ben, Christeen and Peter at Rohan Keswick
Peter Habeler was in town. He gave a really lovely talk last night at Keswick Mountain Festival and today he spent an enjoyable few hours in Rohan Keswick. Out of his bag he produced the Rohan Windlord Jacket and then he put it on. Last time I saw that jacket was 1978 when Paul and I sent it to him. A really emotional moment.

It is such an important part of Rohan Heritage.

A day to remember and shared with friends.
