Today’s walk is another great one along that undulating, rocky ridge of Glaramara. The walk started and finished steeply with a harsh climb up to Seathwaite Fell and a straight down descent from Glaramara.
The sun shone brightly today with temperature reaching a heady 20oC with only a slightly cool breeze reminding me that it is still early on. However, this was the first airing of the year for my Lily-white, winter conditioned legs in shorts – a nice feeling – and the whole walk was completed in shorts and tee shirt only.
At least it was dry today but there was really rather a chilly wind on the tops today; it felt more like Autumn than summer. I parked at Strands Bridge this morning rather than the more popular Seathwaite, preferring to do the flat section first rather than last as I find it makes a good warm-up and the alternative car parking place was a lot quieter. Casper’s fame must be widening too as we were recognised by a party of walkers on Combe Head who were big StridingEdge fans – sorry, no Angus today!
