On ridge walk from Kentmere.Cicatrice22/05/2018
heading from High raise we made our way to Kidsy Pike. I had a little trip but luckily I had ankle supporting boots on hahaha love the summit with sheer drops on one side down to the valley. took some great pictures here before making our long descent to the car. we stop 3 quarters of the way down to use the jetboil for the 3rd time and had pot noodles and just looked at the awesomeness of Haweswater, reflecting on the most perfect of days. from the pot noodle stop headed steeply down following the lake shore back to the car. near the end taking pictures of a bright green sand lizard soaking up the rays on a rock. we set off home very happy about the day stopping off briefly at the best service station ever in southbound teebay before getting home and enjoying some cold beer and wine in the back garden in the sun and having a long long lie in on the sunday before getting Myla back and watching a family film, naked and afraid and chilling. what a weekend.Scotty 2 Hotty21/04/2018
