Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!
Filling my time up around London while the good lady wife was preparing to dice with death by swimming in the Serpentine.
Filling my time up in Lincoln while one of the kids was doing a training day. I went geocaching, obviously.
Our final day. Enough was enouogh. It wasn’t really a day of holiday, because it was a day of driving home.
Barf is a moderately sized hill at Whinlatter with a very entertaining name and a spectacular view from the top.
The family were all over the place today. I went geocaching in Penrith and the ladies went hillwalking and rented a pedalo.
Aira Force is on the list of mandatory things when visiting the Lake District, much like walking in Langdale and drinking tea.
A mixed bag of activities today, with me and Ami opting for descending into an old quarry and then climbing up Holme Fell
An afternoon spent walking with alpacas on the forestry estate up at Whinlatter. It was a fairly gentle activity.
A trip to the Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum, because we weren’t up for another day of walking, but wanted something to do.
Legging it up the Langdale Pikes. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve done the first part of this walk, but we added one more.
A trip to the uphill end of Buttermere to visit some infinity pools and take a dip in some absolutely freezing water
An afternoon spent legging it up Helm Crag and Gibson Knott – two relatively moderate-sized fells above Grasmere.
