Around the fringes of the Lake District there was blue sky and sunshine but, in the southern half at least, it was pretty murky today. It was also surprisingly warm for the time of year, almost ready for spring! I was going to head for the higher fells but stuck to lowly Beacon Fell when I realised just how closed in the weather was and had a bit of a wander around Blawith Common too for a change.
