Time at home in Loweswater with family and friends meant that the next few walks were more local

and less dramatic than of late but still very enjoyable.

This week our daughter and son in law plus our two grandchildren came to visit . . .

We were walking locally today from home,

across to Maggie's Bridge

then up to High Nook Farm.


Along the way we found this old gate post . . . or was it . . .

High Nook Tarn - the dogs had swum to the island again.

Paula took this shot of the rest of us.

Low Fell behind this time but I'm missing from this family photo.

We've made it up to High Nook tarn but Thomas wanted more walking. In view of the time, Ann and Paula took Abi home for her tea

but Thomas, Al and myself continued on underneath Hen Comb and over to Mosedale.

Holding the stick gives you magical power to fight demons and werewolves.

The hillside opposite has some old mine workings which we investigated as we passed.

Ahead was Grasmoor, resplendent in the sunshine.

Home was not far away now.

This week has emphasised the return of summer, and the fine weather had encouraged Ann to wash a few of the cuddly toys . . .

much to the consternation of their owners !

She's washed our toys !!!

Turn your back and they will try and get their toys off the line . . . . . .( move your cursor onto the photo.)

We were also visited by David and his son Daniel this week. They were collecting Wainwright summits and Low Fell and Fellbarrow were waiting to be walked.

Today the weather had taken a dive and all the major tops were hidden under a blanket of low cloud, but these lower fells were clear and promised lower level views - and a cup of tea at the end.

New Gates for old !!

Starting from Thackthwaite we followed the footpath up towards Fellbarrow.

The path has been upgraded with new gated in place of the old stiles. (Do the 'move cursor over the picture' trick again )

On a fine day, this is one of the best views in Britain !
