A few shots from the weekend.

I stayed up at High Close on an invite from a mad poet friend. He's working there over the summer. It's a wonderful old building with fabulous grounds, planted with many varieties of trees and shrubs, particularly Rhodedendrons.

I found a nice secluded level terrace for the newly perimeter meshed and tyvek floored Hut 1

Strolling up for a look over Grasmere, I had to nip smartly off the side of the track as a shepherd came over a hump in the hillside.

He stopped for a look at the view too.

Over in Little langdale I found this delightful pack horse bridge called Slaters Bridge.

We called at the ThreeShires, and nearly got blown over as the Air Ambulance swooped in for someone who'd collapsed in the hotel.

This morning I got a good if hazy view of the Langdale Pikes from Loughrigg, before descending and hitching home.
