Wow, what a scorching weekend it has been
and today continued in the same way. So it was sun cream on and plenty
of drinks for the climb to Lingmoor Fell, the diminutive fell with the
The Langdale Pikes across Blea Tarn.
It was really warm here today, the dogs were straight
in (after the reflection shot, naturally!).

A clear day without a cloud in the sky.

Descending to Lingmoor Tarn.
The Langdales across Lingmoor Tarn.
I came across this sheep stuck in a bog - the poor
thing couldn't move so I did my good deed for the day and hauled it out.
It is amazing how heavy sheep are when laden with mud and water and I
think it must have been there for quite a while as it couldn't walk for
a good 10 minutes or so. You can imagine what Casper and Dougal thought
of me fraternising with the 'enemy'!

There are still the odd clumps of bluebells around.
The Langdales across the wall.
The impenetrable looking wall of Side Pike.
Casper following the path, this is the only way
...only skinny dogs can manage this one! What do you
mean 'how did I manage then'?
The Langdale Pikes.
A hot day for Dougal and Casper.

Back at Blea Tarn, there are a few more clouds around
then there was first thing this morning.
