I was in Patterdale visiting a friend and thought I’d sneak in a cheeky walk whilst there.
Arnison Crag was not the walk I planned to do, I had meant to go up St Sunday Crag (much higher, in hindsight wouldn’t have got there). No matter how many times I looked at the map, it turns out I ended up on the wrong path. I didn’t work this out till later in the evening, asking for confirmation from some of my fell boff friends.
But the path went up (steeply) and the views were good!
It was slightly scrambly to actually sit on the summit (probably wouldn’t think twice about it if I wasn’t carrying a baby on my front).
And as I sat there, the thunder was booming and then I felt something I hadn’t felt in many weeks…. a big fat raindrop!
So Evie’s new piece of kit, the BundleBean, came out and I figured out how to put it on. Thankfully very easily.
Given the turn in the weather I made as rapid a decent as I could and wound my way through some beautiful woods at the bottom.
Which popped you out behind the pub in Patterdale.
Not the walk I planned, but a lovely one. And as it turned out a good one given the weather.
