It was a lovely morning this morning, perfect for a walk onto the fells. Any fells are a good day out for me at the moment; as you may have noticed the walks are a little less frequent these days but it is a case of fitting them in wherever I can – sometimes other things have to be done as well! This is a particular favourite and a good scramble if you like that kind of thing – I think The Old Man must have been busy today as I didn’t see too many people but the car park was completely full when I got back.

Firstly, a few photos from a walk around Ennerdale taken last Saturday (9th April) which turned into a rather warm afternoon…
