Ullswater Part 2
John, Tom, and i spent the afternoon on Wednesday completing the 2nd half of the walk round the Eastern side of Lake Ulswater. We took the ferry to Howtown and then walked the 5 miles back to Pooley Bridge. The weather was lovely and the views down the lake overlooking Sharrow Bay Hotel were just magnificent.

On Wednesday Tom and i spent our first day out with the Brampton Fellwalkers. We did a 7 mile fairly difficult walk on Rosgill Moor near Shap. The highest hill on the walk was Scalebarrow Knott where from the top you had a lovely view of Haweswater which was built in the 30s as a reservoir for Manchester.

Trip to Kirkcudbright
Bill has just retired from his job at BFA so i had promised to take him to Kirkcudbright to see his sister on the first day of his retirement.
John & Tom accompanied us as the plan was to have a 5 mile walk after we had dropped Bill at his sisters. The weather was absolutely glorious and we enjoyed a lovely walk along the shore and via Buckland Glen past the Cemetary where we stopped for a short while to admire the view over the estuary and the River Dee.
