St Sunday’s Crag and Birks – 29/03/19

A beautiful blue skies spring morning – perfect for a walk with friends and ticking off another couple of Wainwright’s with the bubas.

Meeting in Patterdale, despite the warmth in the valley, Oliver, Evie and Sam are wrapped up all snug for our walk. Ready to go mummies!

Setting out up the hill – watching out for their heads under this tree!

A steep climb up, but it did mean that we quickly gained some views.

Stopping half way up for a picnic, the tummies needed filling….

And Sam fed his lunch to Roxy!

Then time for the bubas to have a little potter…

…. before time to pack up again and head to the summit.

Stunning views at the top

Finally we get the the summit

Another walk around for the babies

And a cairn scramble

And this is just too cute! What are they talking about??

After two tearful falls it was time to head back down – we came down over the top of Birks

Even from this lower fell the view was still amazing

The knees knew about it going down, a very steep descent. As did the ears! I think it’s true to say that we did more singing coming down to keep the babies happy. They had about had enough of the packs.

But it was all well worth it, a great day out in the fells and a different environment for Evie, Sam & Oliver to run around in.
