The great thing about having children is that they like to point out your mistakes! Ok, so I got the van stuck in some mud on an October half term camping trip to Boot, in the Lake District! Thanks Richard!
Great time had by all. Cycling, walking, eating and drinking. The Boot Inn and the Brook House Inn serve great food and equally nice beer.
However, it was the walking and cycling we were there for and, in particular, a jolly jaunt up Scafell Pike – weather permitting. Scafell Pike is the tallest mountain in England. We walked up Snowdon this time last year. Ben Nevis next year perhaps?
Lots of waterfalls, the odd phonebox and some views from the mountain!
It was very windy with gusts over 40mph. It rained. But, that did make for some great waterfalls!
On the last day, the rain stopped, clouds almost cleared, so we walked up Scafell Pike. The view was spectacular looking down onto Wast Water which is the deepest lake in England.
Looking forward to the next trip!
