The rain was absolutely bouncing before dawn this morning and I was wondering whether it was indeed a good idea to venture out in such conditions. As it was the rain eased and stopped before I met up with Andy Lang and Gary Jones for a walk around the Whinlatter fells and the weather was ever improving with particularly good views from Barf today. There was plenty of boggy ground to be traversed today though after the recent wet weather.
