I’ve been away. Did you notice?A week with my Mr D, 3 friends, and a Springer Spaniel :)
October is a great time to visit The Lake District. The children are back at school, so not only is it quieter, but cheaper too! We stayed in a lovely cosy cottage near Boot, more West than we’ve ever stayed before.
We walked the Fells.. Then we walked up here.
Climbed. More than walked.
Pillar. Wasdale. I came down some of the way on my bum. It was just easier.
There are pictures of me up there, when I’ve sorted them through. Just to prove that it did actually happen and i didn’t dream it. My thighs are still telling me 3 days later that it did actually happen.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve climbed bigger..much bigger (the biggest!) than this…. but that was about 12 years ago. I’m older now, and the height, & the rocks, & the wind (which actually literally blew me over at one point) scare me.
But we did it, and I also learnt to cook on one of these.
Now that I loved. Perfect for drying out the boots too :) (Well it’s not The Lake District for nothing)
Can’t wait to catch up on all my reading, hope you all had a great week!
