Come up to spy on Wild Cat Island & Kanchenjunga through our new binolculars. The rain is going to chase us down any minute.

Here we are again, our favourite spot for the last 50 years. Spectacular day, brilliant views as ever.

A lovely day, plenty of people about. Saw our next door neighbours across the tarn, on their last leg of the Cumbria Way. Stunning views. This is one of the walks we did when our children were young & now we're coming back to the lower fells again.

Stephen & Catherine Atkinson decided to camp near here & walk the lower fells South of L. District. All the 'big chunks' you see in front of you we have walked. Now it is time for a different view. Taken photos 360o Absolutely FANTASTIC. I still love the "big chunks" though. Another 5 days to walk these beautiful hills of yours. A really lovely idea to share our moments with you. Thank you from C & S from Carlisle.

Stopped raining for ~1 hour.
.... but it's just started again.
Very windy, stopped raining, sun out a bit, lovely walk up here, Rolfie had a swim in the tarn (border collie), not warm enough for me, partner says.
I'm a wimp, might do a skinny dip in Coniston, then again might not.
Lovely up here, can't believe the fantastic views, thought Peak District was great, but this is something else.
Happy walking everybody, all the best,
Shelagh, John & Rolfie
The hills are alive!
The sky is blue(ish)!
The wind is a friend.
Loving the weather and pleased we are here.
We just saw Peter Rabbit.

A lovely idea to have this diary. Thought we were being naughty and reading someone's diary.
This afternoon was the first break in the weather on our rather wet 4 day camping trip. Lovely to be able to get out into the fresh air. Beautiful place.
Sam & Stan (Border terrier) out for an evening run. NO rain, beautiful night.
I didn't smoke this fag.
Checking out my route for next wk, the purple blanket has been so beautiful this morning. I guess all the rain has added extra vibrance.
See you next week, Emma Hoving

Good area for Adders if the sun comes out.
Hope you have a good day.
