It was absolutely chucking it down today but those dogs still need to be walked whatever the weather, so it was a local short walk up to Wainwright Outlying fell Great Burney. They don’t seem to mind the rain so much and neither do I really but it makes for an interesting ‘quick on the draw’ style of photography! Today, I was mostly wearing Paramo…
There was a cool breeze despite the warm sunshine in the southern Lake District this afternoon. Once again it seemed as though our little corner had all the sunshine whilst to the north looked a lot cloudier. Burney lies on the southernmost tip of the Lake District National Park and offers fine views for relatively modest effort.
There was no sunshine this morning and the higher fells were enveloped in a thick cloak of cloud so we decided to walk up to Great Burney, a compact Outlying Fell which is on the southern edge of the Lake District National Park. Connie was keen to try out her new boots today – I think they passed with flying colours!
