Just bivvied out at Beacon Tarn. Lay back and watched the most superb ‘planetarium’ unfold as the last rays of the sun disappeared... Now, mist hangs in the valleys clinging to the lake like a blanket! I am in awe! ...back to the tarn for tea, bacon and eggs!

Camping at Birch Bank Farm, have walked up Little & Great Burney & just kept on Cumbria Way. “Shall we go up to the Beacon again?” “Yes.” 2nd time up here, a wonderful sight & so lovely to see the box & fill it in again.

Missed the crowds! & enjoying the peace & quiet - apart from breeze & twittering wheatears – much the same view for last 60 yrs!
Yes – I’m now a ‘pensioner’! - & have been climbing Beacon Fell nearly all my life! Lovely as ever – the view!!

Rest in Peace Betty (spaniel) xxx
Final resting place for Betty, our faithful spaniel – cast on the winds – gone to the big cheese in the sky!! We love you Betty.

Came up to watch the sunset – 30 minutes of storming to the top & the cloud came down and hid the sun! Ate some bilberries & had some tea. Still a lovely view. Great to be at the top of the hill we have been watching from the barn all week!

I came to watch the sunset and ate some bilberries but had strong winds. (We left a tracker bar.)
