First Ladies of twitter let loose in the Langdales

20140124-204416.jpg
I just love social media especially Twitter. All thanks to Twitter I have made some lovely new friends. Twitter is a bit like speed dating, you are drawn to people with similar interests and then before you know it you are conversing with them on a daily basis. That’s how our Twitter ladies meet came up.Continue reading “First Ladies of twitter let loose in the Langdales”

Bimble up Latterbarrow

Having stayed in Hawkshead with friends Simon and Liz. After a hearty breakfast decided to have a walk before the weather turned.
It’s great doing a walk from the house and not having to drive. So we ventured off to do their local hill Latterbarrow.
It was very muddy which was not a surprise with the recent weather we’ve had. Was a short ascent and were on the top. An enormous summit cairn greeted us along with a 360° view.

It’s a fantastic view for very little effort. This is my first official outlying Wainwright! From here, was a descent through the forest and made out way back towards Hawkshead. Of course had to have a pint in the Kings Arms.
I just love the bespoke carved pillar, amazing craftsmanship.

I have wanted to do this walk for awhile and definitely needed a good day for it. So with fingers crossed arranged a twitteratti walk to do this. I like a linear walk and was excited about the prospect of ticking off 10 Wainwrights, though I have done Helvellyn before.

Newlands horseshoe – Sept 8th 2013

With a terrible forecast for the weekend, my first wild camp was cancelled again. I think personally it’s Mother Nature telling me to stick to hotels!! Having seen the sunset on the last couple of evening walks, I truly can’t wait to experience it from the top of a fell with a malt in hand. I did suggest to Gary that we camp on Binsey but he said no! A proper hill for your first camp, so fingers crossed for a good forecast soon. Continue reading “Newlands horseshoe – Sept 8th 2013”
