Mikkel admiring the viewWaterfall

Headed up to the Lake District under clear skies on a Friday night, woke up to rain in the morning. Then it rained and then it rained some more! A brief trip into Ambleside for cake and then out to Hodge Close intending to go for a little walk, we had a wander, watched the soaked bikers doing the Polaris challenge and then got back in the car! On the way back to the hut we had to do a few u-turns to avoid flooded roads.

Sunday was a new day and it could have been a whole different weekend. The sun was out, only a few wisps of clouds in the sky. Did a circuit round Lonscale, think everyone must have been scared away by the rain the day before, because it was deserted nearly all the way. Great views.
