30 December 2011
The weather forecast was for rain all day after a dry
start. I slept longer than I'd intended but stuck to the plan of a
shortish low level walk, which if the weather allowed could be extended,
and if the weather was then continuing fine I had a second walk up my
sleeve. I needn't have bothered!
It rained most of the drive here to the limestone ridge to the west of Kendal,
but it was dry for the last ten minutes or so. Enjoying the dry weather, Hetty
has her first run in the Lake District.
Hetty and George having fun.
Ahead is Cunswick Scar
The large pile of stones on the summit, Hetty's first
Outlying Wainwright summit - well done
The rain set in just after we left the summit, and it was pretty steady as we
neared the car park, so the initial plan of crossing the road to the south and
visiting Scout Scar was put off for another day, and I drove to Kents Bank and
watched the rain on the sea from the comfort of the car.
A pleasant little walk.
Total distance 4.6 km and 104 metres of ascent in 1 hours 8 mins
