The school holidays have begun, so the first job of the day was to get Connie some new boots and a new jacket from Keswick before testing them out with a walk up to Walla Crag via Ashness Bridge. It was not a bad day today; the wind on the top was cold and brought snow flurries, much to Connie’s amazement – she thought it was Spring!
