Today I was joined by StridingEdge stalwarts Andy Lang and Gary Jones for a circuit of Martindale. The occasion was to take in my final two Wainwrights to complete my third time round them, namely Beda Fell and High Raise. After the early mist lifted, the sun shone making it a great end to the walk and of course to completion of the 642!
It was lovely and sunny this morning when I set off from Sandwick for a circuit of Boredale – so much so that the legs were soon zipped off from my trousers to make the first walk in shorts this year (was it really only a month ago I was on Harter Fell in the snow?). This was Casper’s first ‘big’ walk and he seemed to cope okay, with a few tips thrown in from the master, Angus.
