Fellwalkers’ Annual Dinner

As usual this event was held at the Old Crown, Hesket Newmarket, preceded by a walk up some of the nearby Northern Fells.

The previous few days had been thick with freezing fog and nil visibility (though apparently there were great cloud inversions for those of us who could get out from work to see them), but today the cloud lifted.

From High Pike one usually continues to Carrock Fell, and today was no exception:

At this point we actually got some sunshine though it was pretty chilly on the tops.

That evening, good food included blueberry trifle – which I ate before my camera had the chance to capture a picture – and chocolate pot:

Are those carrot shavings on top?

  1. Wow, checkout the blue sky.
    Ah yes, I remember, we had some of that in Saturday, soon to be replaced by the usual grey damp stuff.
    Looks like a great day out, and the fells to yourselves.

    The chocolate pot (with orange shavings, Pete) looks very yummy, but not nearly big enough. :yum:
