Auntie Imo was doing a big fell race local to us – The Grizedale Horseshoe- so we thought we would go and watch. It turned into a fun packed afternoon following a morning of jobs.
We walked against the flow of the race down the beautiful Grizedale valley to get to the river crossing, where we made it in time to watch the runners cross the river,
Including Auntie Imo
Of course then Evie HAD to go in the river, fall in the river, need a change of clothes…. before heading to the finish line.watching the runners last rediculously steep climb up
We took the gentler route up past Lantys Tarn, which had gorgeous reflections
At the finish line we finally (all previous plans having gone wrong) met cousin Sam and Omi, and went for some well deserved late lunch for all.
Walking back to Patterdale we came across a secret door!
And then we finished our afternoon meeting up with Daddy and going for a gentle paddle board.
Action packed, we headed home ready for sleeps.
