Well, after the long hours sorting out Love the Lakes in Keswick – some in the shop and lots at home as well – it was good to get out on the fells once more and Casper and Dougal were certainly wound up like coiled springs and when I let them out of the car there was no stopping them. This was a good little walk; it was dull and grey but at least it was fine. The rain over the weekend meant the ground was sodden once more and I did manage to get a good boot full crossing Highford Beck near the beginning of the walk!
