Skye's Expedition

We're just coming to the end of a great weekend. Most of which has been spent in the Lake District.

Skye had been asking for ages if she could climb up a "Big Mountain" so of course her expedition was duly organised. Saturday morning, breakfast yummed and we're away. Ann kindly drops us at the car park, and soon enough we're onwards and upwards.

I'd picked a hill, Coniston old Man, that has many attractions, old mines, lakes, industrial archeology and of course the weather was nice.
Skye found flowers, rocks, lakes, railway lines, shit beetles, but found walking up that hill hard work.

We drank lots, ate a bit, and soon enough we were there.

Down, down, down.

It was super windy on the top, not a place to hang around, and we zoomed of the top of the Old Man. At the pass, a steep descent to the lake. Whoops a grazed knee, a couple of tears, knees a little wobbly.

Cake to the rescue.

Not far now. All the crisps you can eat + lemonade too.

Some time later, the Black Bull, crisps lemonade crisps lemonade crisps crisps lemonade.

Back at the lake me and Tom went to throw stones.
