On Sunday we found a new mountain biking circuit on the far side of Lake Windermere. More “Latterbarrow Biking”
After a few hours at Kendal climbing wall in the morning with Jon, it was was time for me to get off home as Laetitia’s parents were visiting for the weekend…
Although it was not a great weather forecast for the weekend (i.e. wet), after lunch it seemed to dry out a bit. So we decided a run into Ambleside and a possible walk around Elterwater was worth an optimistic look. We were lucky, the afternoon stayed dry and with the heavy clouds the late afternoon and evening skies were very moody.
It was nearly 7pm by time we got back to the car. This was lucky too as we managed to see two deer in the woods. Unfortunately they were too fast, too far away and too well camouflaged to allow any useful photos – the picture below is there just to prove we saw them! 😉 But it was the first time I’d seen a living deer in the Lakes that wasn’t either running across the road or sad road-kill. 🙁 Strange that up until now I’d never seen them on the fells, so different to Scotland where they are commonly seen out in the hills.
Check out these two cats that were clearly in charge of a farm yard near Little Langdale…
These stepping stones across the river from Little Langdale tarn were quite exciting, being quite widely spaced and a little slippy from the day’s rain.
After spraining my ankle in mid August, I’ve finally got enough strength back in my ankle to tackle the Cumbrian Fells again.
The weather was fantastic when I awoke so it was a good day to visit a couple more Wainwright’s. More “Back on track”
