It was oddly sunny-but-not today as there seemed there was a lot of high level cloud giving shade cover a lot of the time. There has been plenty of rain over the weekend too, so this normally boggy walk was even worse today. It was a good little taster of fell life for Dougal, though, and Connie loves it up here too. Today was the first time I have had a chance to play with my new camera – of course when you upgrade you end up getting more buttons and more menus to learn – I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it all in the end. The camera was purchased with the proceeds from the 2010 calendar, so thanks to all who have bought one.
