Scout Scar Lockdown Walk

Today I drove to Kendal for food shopping, our village has a small shop but doesn't have the greatest range of goods. I took the opportunity to have a walk on part of Scout Scar. It was a beautiful day with no wind. The change of scene did me good, although there were a good number of folk out on the Scar everyone, without fail was keeping their distance from one another.
Both the Lakes hills and the Howgills looked tantalisingly close, but alas out of bounds for the moment :-(

The Turtle Stone

Yet another "Lockdown" wander over local footpaths and access land. Today's jaunt was to try and find the fabled "Turtle Stone" on Hutton Roof Crags....more correctly Ploverlands. 
Yes I know I was there only a couple of days ago...but with the restrictions....

A Frosty Walk to Ploverlands

As we continue into "Lockdown 3" I am walking many of the same routes as before. I am fortunate to have some great terrain locally...walking from my front door at this time of year when the days are short is not to much of a hardship. I may have a different opinion in 6 or 7 weeks time!

Fairy Steps

Out for a wander from home again, in line with the Covid19 restrictions. Today I headed West to Fairy Steps and the edge of Morecambe Bay at Sandside. I returned home via Dallam Park. A mainly sunny, but cold day.

Farleton Knott in the Snow

Another walk from home (Holme) here in Cumbria as in most of the UK, we are in Tier 4 due to Covid19. This requires us to travel as little as possible, although we can travel a short distance by car for exercise. I'm lucky to have Farleton Knott as my local hill, the summit is only 1500 metres or so from my front door (as the Crow Flies). My planned route today changed as the snow fell just as I was about to ascend the steep Western "face".....it was still an enjoyable few hours.....

A Wintery Wildcamp on Wansfell

A phone call from Ian on Monday, he was expecting his new tent and wanting to try it out on an overnight camp...before the next round of Tiers/lockdown. Wansfell with its superb views was the choice. I asked if he minded me tagging along. So having met in Troutbeck yesterday, socially distanced of course off we went. It was a grand do, I should do more of this kind of thing. But to often the motivation is lacking. 
Here's a short? video of the trip...is 6½ minutes to long? Anyway it's a record for me really....

A Walk From Wray Castle

A short walk from Wray Castle today, lots of folk about....but we soon left them behind as we dropped down to Low Wray and passed through the campsite (Closed) to reach the shore of Windermere.
Good to see the sun. Another short moving picture show of the trip below...
