Kendal Skyline September 2017

On a day when Windermere got quite a soaking and 160 odd houses got flooded in Millom, we managed to stay surprisingly dry!  The autumn colours were beginning to show and the views were improving as the day rolled on and the thunder clouds rolled out of the area.  It sure did look dark at one…

Pennine Way Hebden Bridge to Horton in Ribblesdale September 2017

The Pennine Way is rapidly becoming our lucky walk!  Six days of the route done so far and sunshine and dry weather all the way!  I dare say we will get our come upance very soon!  We particularly enjoyed the contrast between the Moors and the Limestone Country on this trip.  Hawes here we come…

Crinkle Crags August 2017
