I continued working my way around the Far Eastern fells by walking Place Fell from Patterdale today. I found this walk relatively easy and for me the manufactured paths spoiled it; they take away the character and soul of the fells I feel – but I guess that is the price to be paid for popularity. There were lots of sunny spells this morning but the wind up there was wild.
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.
