Gave the boy a little extra rest, and went for a short run around town in the morning.
Later we all went for the Grisedale tarn round from Patterdale.
It was beautiful, and not too hard. But everyone’s crashed out now, and I’m busy thinking of ways to get them out of the house again tomorrow 🙂
Been a long time since the last 5 checkmark day, but today’s been worth the wait.
Went for an 8AM hike up Wansfell pike with Chewie. Had the whole hill to ourselves. Met a fell runner on the way up, and sole woman on the way down. The quietest ascent of this hill I’ve done.
After a lazy afternoon, went for a walk down to Waterhead to stake out swimming and kayaking locations for later in the week.
Now opening a beer and looking up routes for tomorrow’s adventures.
Lakes, mountains and hikes, just the holidays I needed.
On Sunday morning, R casually asked me what would be a good way to kill me. (I suggested a few practical and efficient ones, but she wanted outlandish Villanelle kind ideas)
Last two days she’s been watching a new serial, ‘How to get away with murder.’
If I die or disappear, you know where to look..
