At least it was dry today but there was really rather a chilly wind on the tops today; it felt more like Autumn than summer. I parked at Strands Bridge this morning rather than the more popular Seathwaite, preferring to do the flat section first rather than last as I find it makes a good warm-up and the alternative car parking place was a lot quieter. Casper’s fame must be widening too as we were recognised by a party of walkers on Combe Head who were big StridingEdge fans – sorry, no Angus today!
