Today’s walk was from Buttermere up to Robinson the steep way from Hassness. The weather was changeable though there were long sunny spells. Once on the top of Robinson the cloud closed in and it was back to hat and gloves in the cold wind.

The recent humid weather continued today and the views were very hazy until the sun managed to burn through towards the end of the walk. I think Casper was feeling the heat today, so much so that he was nearly tripping over that tongue of his. Mind you, I was nearly tripping over mine too – phew, it was too hot to walk!

I wasn’t holding out much hope for the weather today as it was very grey and looked a certainty for rain – as it was I thought we faired pretty well as the rain held off for the whole round. This is a great way to reach the summit of Robinson and the views were good from there, even the high winds couldn’t spoil that.
