Dougal was in for the op that any male wouldn’t like to think too much about today (gulp!) so it was down to young Fletcher to be #1 Fell Dog for the day. They were big paws to fill but Fletcher had no problems carrying it off – today he experienced snow and ice for the first time. Winter has struck on the high ground and the wind was icy coild, through to the bone on the tops but when the leaden skies cleared, what fabulous views there were to be had.
I’ve been very busy of late and it’s been a little while since I was out on the fells but I managed to make it up onto Lingmoor Fell today. The weather was mixed and it felt a little fresh up there but it was good to be out in the fresh air with only my thoughts for company (plus Dougal and Casper of course!).
Sunshine and blue skies again today for a short walk up to Lingmoor Fell, one that is short in stature but offers really fine views of the surrounding high fells. Casper and Angus both came today, Angus being particularly fond of this walk as there are two opportunities for a decent swim (the hardy soul!).
The sun was shining again this morning for a walk up to Lingmoor Fell, but there was an icy wind, perhaps bringing snow with it as forecast; the clouds had certainly gathered over the fells by the end of the walk. There are great views from this little fell, nestling in between the Langdales and the Coniston fells.
