Another Walk in Gelt Valley

In the absence of Tom, who is in Barbados for 10 days and has e mailed me twice to say it is raining we headed to Aglionby to walk with Peter. I collected John and Sandria at Carlisle station of the Edinburgh train which arrived bang on time and we had morning coffee and hot scones at Peter and Elizabeth's. 
We left the ladies to go for a short walk to Talkin Tarn and we travelled the short distance to The Gelt Woods near Brampton for a walk along the river Gelt. It is very spectacular with fast flowing water through solid rock riverbed worn smooth in places. 
Very fast flowing channels of water through the rock
With several deep pools
This section has a walkway beside the river, but one slip and you could be in the fast flowing deep water

After our 4 mile walk we met the girls at The Royal Oak at Scotby for an excellent lunch. It was a perfect day in great company and with excellent hospitality from Peter and Elizabeth. We did miss Tom and look forward to having him back with us on our walks soon.
