As I had been out walking most days last week today, Saturday, I had intended to go bouldering up on the fell.
The sun was shining through my curtains early this morning promising a fine day. I was sipping my life giving coffee when the phone rang suggesting a short walk on Longridge Fell. As I have not seen Dave and Christine for a while, we are in special measures in Lancashire with no visiting house or garden. I’m glad to meet up with them. As I thought the parking would be busy.
We strolled up the fell chatting away. We remarked on how fast the fir saplings were growing and intruding into the path. What will it be like in another few years?There was a cold wind blowing and it felt definitely Autumnal. Considering the number of cars parked up we saw few people, they may all have gone up to the trig point which we avoided.
A pleasant short walk in good company. I went bouldering up at Craig y Longridge in the afternoon.
It’s been good to be out. Nice to see some better weather.
Making the most of the weekend.
