The weather on the first day of the bank-holiday weekend turned out much wetter than forecast, so the planned rock climbing excursion to Borrowdale was modified into a poor weather navigation practice up on Blencathra. We based our activities around some of the controls on a copy of Rachel & Richard’s LAMM taster orienteering maps from 2007 which they had given us a few months ago. (Thanks for that R & R!) The team (Anna, Ian, Laetitia, and Pete) got blown about in weather varying from sunny moments to heavy wind-driven rain … a whole lot of fun, as thanks to the company we spent more time laughing than getting lost!
After all that we retired to a cafe in Keswick for tea & cakes!
