Autumn Colours


I normally find Autumn a bit tedious…  the end of those long hazy days of Summer. Holidays, beach bar-b-que’s and warm evenings camping; all but a distant memory. Christmas seems so far away and there’s a long stretch at work with no public holidays on the calender. Autumn in the UK can sometimes be a bit of a drab affair.  …I say sometimes.  We’ve had some fantastic sunny days over the last few weeks and natures colours have been rich and golden…

Following the previous weekends excursion sea kayaking to the NE coast I went NW this last weekend to the Lake District. My friend Phil owns a small cottage there and wanted help in laying concrete for an extension. "The Lads" work well together and we had the job finished within a few hours leaving the rest of the weekend for some hill walking. Open-mouthed

Sunday saw us do a circuit of Loughrigg Fell.  It’s quite modest in height, only 335 meters, but it offers some of the most spectacular views in the Lake District. We did a circular walk for about 8 miles and just took in the full glory of Autumns colours. Definately a day for photo opportunities and "a good day for the soul".
