Today was one the hottest day ever recorded around these parts – it was slightly cooler where we went, given the height and a nice cooling breeze on the tops. The main criteria today was somewhere to swim (of course!) and where better than the deserted Devoke Water – we had a great time here today and wondered where the time had gone when we got back.
