This is one of our regular walks when we come to the Lake District, and one we rarely change. We really ought to include Rydal Water in the loop and walk back via the coffin route and make a bit more of it. However today the weather was a bit gloomy, cloud was down and a bit of damp drizzle in the air. That said the area is lovely and whilst sunshine makes it glorious here, its a perfect walk in this weather. This walk included the whole family, my auntie, uncle and cousin had come up from St Helens for the weekend, which allowed for some evening frivolity and some football the next day on the Sunday (Utd vs Liverpool) which we very much enjoyed. This walk however was at a leisurely pace after some fine pancakes at Emma’s Dell in the village, with some fine company and conversation.
