A Bimble up Barrow

Yesterday gave us one of those glorious evenings whereby you have absolutely no choice whatsoever, but to go out and make the most of it. I chose to have a bimble up Barrow to take in the view of the mighty Skiddaw and also down into Newlands Valley. It’s a fairly gentle start to the…

Walk after Work

Summer evenings are just the best aren’t they? Warm, light evenings are just the perfect invitation for a walk after work.

Buttermere

On Saturday morning I made the most of the sunshine and took myself off to Buttermere where I enjoyed a lovely walk round the lake.

Spring

Today is the first day of spring, in the meteorological calendar at least. March 20th marks the beginning of spring in the astronomical calendar. Whichever you follow, there can be no denying that spring was certainly in the air on Sunday morning. I woke to brilliant blue skies and in the minutes that followed, managed…
