Sunshine and blue skies again today for a
short walk up to Lingmoor Fell, one that is short in stature
but offers really fine views of the surrounding high fells.
Casper and Angus both came today, Angus being particularly
fond of this walk as there are two opportunities for a
decent swim (the hardy soul!).
