We are back from our weekend in the Lake District. We had a lovely time! The weather yesterday wasn't too bad, especially in the morning.
The photo above was taken in the Lakes in 2005, this time these hill tops had snow on them, it snowed overnight and again this morning - click on the link below, there is a photo showing just what it was like this morning.
It was lovely to see our friends and the lunch they gave us was really nice.
The hotel was comfortable, although the bedrooms are in need of decorating. The food was excellent, we ate and drank too much but that's what a weekend away is all about, isn't it?
We went walking yesterday but I didn't the full walk the group did (they walked up Cat Bells which I have done before) because of the groin strain, if I had I wouldn't have been able to get my leg high enough on some of the steep bits, also my hands were too sore to put pressure on the walking pole I tend to use for steep bits. Never mind, I enjoyed the bit I did do, the views were very good.
In the afternoon I went into Keswick and had a potter about there. I then went back to the hotel and read my book for a while.
This morning the group did a short walk before we left but myself and 2 of the other ladies sat in the hotel lounge, had a chat and watched the snow come down.
Hope you had as nice a weekend as I did!
