What a gorgeous summer day today, the best this year that I have been out in for sure. I headed over to Wasdale and had a walk up to Yewbarrow which is always a great walk. I managed to find not one but two places to have a welcome dip today and there is no better feeling than having a bathe in cool, fresh water on a day such as today.

Regular viewers will know that I have been writing a feature for Lake District Life magazine for the last couple of years. That magazine is now defunct and has amalgamated with the much bigger Lancashire Life. I am pleased to announce that I have now signed up to write a column in there starting from the August issue – stick with me Casper lad, I’ll make you a star!
