On Sunday I went up to the Lake District with my local Rambling Club where I did the ‘A’ party walk led by Margaret. We started the walk from Patterdale and crossed Goldrill Beck to begin the long slog up to Boredale Hause. As we gained height the views opened up. Ahead and to the right we could look down on Brothers Water and Ullswater stretched out behind us.

Climb up to Boredale Hause

From Boredale Hause we crossed Martindale Common to reach Beda Fell. The weather was closing in but we still had good views looking north towards Ullswater.

We followed the ridge heading north climbing over several rocky knolls to reach the summit of Beda Fell at 1664 ft from where we could enjoy the view.

At the end of the ridge we descended to Knickerthorns and followed Howgrain Beck to Sandwick. From here we joined the popular lakeside path back to Patterdale. I used to consider this to be one of the most scenic paths but unfortunately the rain had set in and we could hardly see across the lake.

Back in Patterdale we headed for the White Lion where a pint of draught Bass lifted my spirits.

Another good day in the Lakes taking in an area seldom walked.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
    blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
