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.

I travelled East again today to complete a circuit of the fells between Ullswater and Boredale, taking in Place Fell as the high point. There are fabulous views of Ullswater from here, made all the better today with the pleasant Autumn conditions.
