As it is I am now looking at wonderful scenery. It's 11.00am and it's stopped raining. The wind has picked up quite a bit.
Talked to a lady runner from Cockermouth doing the Coniston high circuit.
I had forgotten how many good camp spots are beside the Walna, hindsight.
At the watershed I met the runner coming off Brown Pike, she said she couldn't run over Dow as the wind was blowing her over.
I lunched at Walna quarries before heading down into Seathwaite where my mate at Turner Hall campsite has just bought a new Massey Ferguson tractor. Pictures will be published when I get home.
It's been a very wet 4 days baring Tuesday afternoon but I have enjoyed it non the less. I will expand the post when I get back.

Oh yes. If anyone reads that I am staying at Coniston Hall campsite again you will know I have lost the plot.

Thank God, no pun intended, for Rusland church where I sheltered for half hour and dripped everywhere. Got to Slatterthwaite and camped..
Today started fine and I'm now in Grizrdale forest heading for Coniston.

From there we followed the gritstone edge round to Alphin Pike.
Great views, some wonderful rock formations and a steep descent back down to Greenfield.
11km and 4.5 hrs. Misty, drizzly start but cleared to be a lovely blue sky day.
