There was just time for a short walk up to School Knott this morning in somewhat dull weather. The promised brightness didn’t materialise but the colours on display from the flora on the walk made up for that.

It is ages since I have been up to School Knott, 5 years in fact which I can hardly believe. I guess when they are right on your doorstep you tend to pass them by. There are lovely views from here and it was worth a visit today as Bowness and Windermere seemed to be the only places with any sunshine or views, the rest of the lakes was covered in low lying cloud and there were lots of showers around. Young Dougal had another outing, I love to see him running free – it’s how a dog should be.
