A morning departure from Broughton back to
London meant that there was little time for walking, but with another
sunny day forecast, it was a shame to waste any opportunity for a nice
outing, so by 7.30am we were parked at Whicham and making our way up
Ellie and George as we start our morning walk.
Looking back to the sea on this hazy morning.
Two happy dogs taking a quick breather. Ellie thinks this is much better than
Sunday's walk on Wetherlam and Black
8.40am, and we're at the trig point and wind shelter in only 70 minutes. Many
people have done it much more quickly, no doubt, but this was still good for us.
At one point I had thought a t-shirt a mistake, but it soon warmed up
It was a shame that it was so hazy - the view towards Lakeland
Beginning the descent, and the dogs are full of energy
A short pause on the way down
As we gain the lane back to the car, a last look up at the base of the hill.
