There has been plenty of snow around Cumbria and the Lake District this weekend with some fabulous winter weather to go with it. I managed to miss all that being busy with all sorts of other things so today when I managed to get out, the day was very different to the weekend. Gone were the blue skies and winter wonderland, the south Lakes was transfrormned into a very overcast scene. It was a real winters day with mist hanging around and not a breath of air plus with all the snow dampening down any noise it made for a quite eerie walk. It was enjoyable though, Fletcher and Dougal certainly enjoyed being in the snow today.
