Christmas Walks, 3

Rain buggered up Plan A, which was Derwentwater followed by a small bit of supporting local businesses, ie: look at the sales in Keswick. 

Plan B: parking just off the Whinlatter road and a 5 mile there-and-back to Force Crag Mine to have a look at the new settlement ponds.  Got a bit wet on the way back but it was a smashing walk. 

A Small Canine Personage has decided that obeying the "sit" command, when doing so results in her bum connecting with cold wet ground, is very boring.

  1. Loving those waterfalls and the snow on the tops. Although maybe you have it at low level as well now?

    1. Hi Jessica, no white stuff at Bag End, and relatively little on the tops.

  2. Can't blame Daisy- the dog has sense.

    A light covering of the white stuff here last night now mostly gone.

  3. Just catching up after going to Canberra with the caravan on Boxing Day. Got home about 7pm tonight (29th) and have heard all about the cold snap in UK & Europe. Coming home today we had a thunderstorm, very, very strong winds and temps of 35deg at one stage, so not pleasant for travelling especially towing a van, so talk about opposites.
    Love the look of each of your walks and think the tradition of fish and chips on Xmas Eve is a good one. Nice and easy. Snuggle up and take care.

  5. No snow here Jayne but a fair bit in the West Riding. Lots of lovely frosty blue sky days till today which has turned mild and grey. Envious of your walks, seem to have been inside for days with family and festivities!

    1. Hope you got out a bit Jill, can't be doing with staying inside - any visitors here know they have to man-up and get outside. Probably why we don't have many folk here, ha ha :}

  6. Smart Canine Person. ;) What a fantastic place to walk! I used to love hiking but we really have no place to do so here. At least not without taking a long drive to a nice hiking trail.

    1. Hi Leigh, lovely to hear from you. Yes, we are totally spoilt with all the wonderful walking opportunities - but that is one of the main reasons we moved here. We used to drive 350 miles (each way) just to spend a few days in these surroundings.
