Temperature Inversions

Temperature inversions would appear to have been the main topic of conversion in the Lake District this week. News was out on Sunday evening that Monday had a good inversion forecast and walkers were out in numbers with their cameras. Social media was awash with fantastic images. Work commitments prevented me from getting out on…

Grasmoor from Darling Fell

Low Fell and Darling Fell

Despite having walked extensively throughout the lakes for many years now, there are still many places I have yet to visit. Not just fell tops, but valleys and tarns too. My list of ‘things to do and places to see’ seems to be growing faster than I can tick them off. In fact I do…

Sunday Morning Walks

So the clocks have gone back and with it comes the final nail in the coffin for evening walking. It’s not all bad news though is it? Rather than getting downhearted about the dark evenings I tend to focus on the positive and look forward with great relish to my Sunday morning walks. If you’re…

Berwick Upon Tweed

Final leg to Berwick-upon-Tweed

Today’s walk, from Fenwick to Berwick-upon-Tweed, was the final leg of our Northumberland Coast Path walking holiday.  It consisted mainly of well-made paths and roads. We joined a group of Irish ladies who were walking St Cuthbert’s Way. We remained with them as far as the causeway to Lindisfarne then we were on our own….

St Cuthbert's Cave

St Cuthbert’s Cave

Today’s section of our Northumberland Coast Path walk has been a complete contrast to the previous days walking as we followed the trail inland through woods and over farmland. Naturally the wildlife we encountered was different also, with pheasants, hares, yellowhammers, horses, cows and even a woodpecker (heard but not seen). We also saw some…

Seahouses to Belford

Craster, Seahouses and Belford

Craster to Seahouses After a liberal application of deep heat and a good night’s sleep, my leg was much improved this morning so off we set for Seahouses. The prospect of more dune walking concerned me a little so I have to confess that after checking the tides, we decided to keep to the beaches…

Morpeth, Warkworth and Craster

Morpeth to Warkworth Today after a cheery goodbye from our hostess at Morpeth and a lift to the start of the trail from Mark at Carrylite, we began our walk up the coast. It was a glorious day and the beach was wide and pretty much deserted. We saw lots of bird life, strange markings…

Today…

Friendships are formed as we share our enjoyment of walking, holidaying and the countryside around us, wherever that may…

Port Carlisle

Carlisle to Bowness on Solway

Today was the last day of our Hadrian’s Wall walk, 16 miles from Carlisle to Bowness on Solway. Although there is nothing to see of the wall the trail follows the line of it and the vallum is visible in places. Most of this mornings walk was over fields and tracks. It rained a little…
