Today’s mission was to see the Osprey’s from the viewpoint in Dodd Wood, make it to the top of Dodd and have some nice cake in the tearoom at the end – all accomplished! There was a brief spell of sunshine on the way up to the summit, but later we could see the rain quickly advancing across the Derwent Valley and we got a good soaking during lunch – not to worry, we didn’t let it dampen our enthusiasm much!
