Parlick in the Rain.

Just returned from a trip up PARLICK [432M], above Chipping, with a friend who has recently lost his wife from cancer.  He fancied a change of scenery.

How wrong were we with the weather forecast! Within minutes of setting off the cloud base dropped and we were in  cold, wind driven, rain. Not so good in shorts.

We carried on hoping for a lifting of the weather, but arrived at the summit with no improvement or visibility

We met nobody but a few wet sheep looking for shelter.

Soaked to the skin we arrived back at the car resolving to return on a day of better weather.

Hope my wandering chat was of some diversion to my friend’s state of mind and normality – but as he says ‘what is normal at this time in his life’.

There are no pictures of the trip!!
