It was another bright day today and we managed to beat the majority of the hoards up to Coniston Old Man, which was timely as it happened as the clouds rolled in when we were at the summit. I hate to say it but there was just the feeling of a slight nip in the air and the bracken is starting to look slightly brown. I wonder if there will be any hot days to come? I haven’t even managed a swim anywhere yet this summer!
