Hello followers. Just like every other blogger I am going to apologise with you all ( yes the four of you ) for having been quite absent of late. I have been busy and, oh by the way I am much much better, thank you, my back pain is nothing but a distant memory. So distant that since we have last spoken to each other ( I like to view this as a dialogue, you see) , I must have walked about 100 miles , all right 50 but most of them vertical which has to be taken into account .
Rookie and I have a tradition which he started on the first anniversary of us getting together: we take a few days off, first was Cambridge, than St Ives in Cornwall, Settle in the Yorkshire Dales and this year Keswick in the Lake District ( more and more adventurous as the years go by I hear you thinking ).
Well, it was sensational: the mild autumn worked in our favour so that the trees were still covered in warm tinted leaves, heavy big clouds interspersed by deep blue skyes and very little rain. But let me take you through a photographic journey
The day after we decided to go for a longish walk ( 12 miles, remember mostly vertical !), the so called Eel Crag horseshoe , that was one of the most amazing walks, at times even hazardous and down right frightening ,but then again it is me writing this blog, not exactly a mountain goat, an April lamb if anything.
What follows really surprised me, it is filmed from the top of Eel Crag, you can see Scotland from there and me pointing at the rude finger and making funny faces , lets see if you can figure out what happened and yes, got the fingers mixed up
Many other walks have taken place, all beautiful until the second last day when we decided to go to Borrowdale starting our walk at Seatoler , which apparently is the wettest inhabited place in England where it rains 2 days out of 3. We were on the wrong side of the statistic.
